It exists primarily to increase professional and personal development to achieve work-life balance through enhancing skills, inspiring innovation, and achieving/setting goals to improve the workplace. The date(s) of the event is varied and decided upon by the committee.

FAILING FORWARD: The Subtle Art Of Everyday Success
Each of us is special. We are all completely and totally unique, in our own way. The purpose of this presentation is to help you stay connected to your own value, so that you are able to proceed with confidence, accept (without judgement) that there is always room for improvement, and know that you have done your best; and that your best IS good enough.
