DISRUPTION: Covid-19, Civil Unrest and the Silver Lining

Featuring: Toni Cunningham

Event Sponsor: Apprenti

Event Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86889846164

SUMMARY:

Covid-19 and civil unrest have become the inconvenient truths of today. In the wake of these two phenomenons, many of us have had to reexamine our beliefs and, in some cases our entire careers. In this discussion we will explore how our perception of DISRUPTION can set us on a path of self-discovery that will either make us or break us both personally and professionally. The goal of the session will be to share how we can use the inconvenience of DISRUPTION as a positive strategy for getting us to our next in both our personal and professional lives.
