Title: The Connection: A Little Vulnerability Wrapped In Fun
All across the country we are coming back together and learning how to connect again in our teams and organizations. But so often we mistake contact for connection. We email, we post, we plan events, but we don’t actually connect. Human connection is about shared vulnerability, shared values and shared experiences. Individuals that feel more connected are more likely to persist and thrive. This program is interactive and participants will engage in fun humor exercises to rejuvenate their mind and deepen connection and resiliency.

Dr. Maria Sirois, Resilience Expert, Author and Coach
Title: A Collective Resilience: Seeing Through Systemic Eye
To quote botanist Robin Wall Kimmerer, “What happens to one, happens to all.” She refers to both the collective wellbeing of tree and plant species as well as to our human species. To create a global health, for ourselves and the planet, we are charged with seeing and behaving through systemic perspectives. Maria Sirois explores how our resilience-based practices, even the tiniest of them, potentiate wellbeing in others. She encourages us to challenge ourselves, knowing that as we see ourselves connected to larger circles, we become inspired to take significant action on our own behalf, in order to cultivate wider positive influence.
