Lead for Success: Cultivating Self-Resilience in Uncertain Times

Amid constant change, take charge of your life to better support yourself and others.

About this Event

“Change happens. Change is definitely going to happen, no matter what we plan or expect or hope for or set in place. We will adapt to that change, or we will become irrelevant.” – Adrienne Maree Brown

Self-resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity and as nonprofit professionals, especially right now, it’s crucially important to care for ourselves, our work, and our families.
