Dream your dream

How does one muster that cry for courage? to find what’s within them to keep on daring to dream the dream? To believe with unwavering faith that your reinvention is at hand? That your second chance possible? That you will not just get through—that you will triumph. As we soon prepare to close in on our new reality, we want you to be ready.

Our sense-making conversations are put together with the hopes that you continue to adapt and evolve. We do this as our way of thanking you for the support you’ve given us over the years. We have the content, we have resources, and we want to help you continue to stay engaged and continue that dream.

This upcoming week you can expect a different schedule week with our Sense-Making Conversation happening on Friday at 12:30 pm.

As well as our “Ask Me Anything” style forum with our Changemakers, on Tuesday & Thursday also at 12:30 pm.
