This Roundtable is FREE and Open to All!
With many of our lives forever changed by the pandemic and confusing, conflicting news coming at us every day, it can be difficult to keep moving forward, maintain a positive outlook, stay connected, and focus on your success. However, there are great things happening every day: medical breakthroughs, new businesses, neighbors helping one another, emerging technologies, reduced emissions, and more. So why amidst chaos do we still see people accomplishing great things? The key is maintaining a positive mindset, focus, and connections.

Speaker Tonya Kauhi will share how a positive approach and professional connections are not only beneficial for your organization but also your career and ultimately identifying and following your passion.

Following Tonya’s presentation, we’ll break into small groups for true roundtable discussions to explore Tonya’s ideas in more depth, along with our individual perspectives. 

This program is open to all.
