Description

Let’s start 2019 off with grounded intentions for ourselves and ways to navigate the stressful feelings we take on from the workplace. Join the Dallas Tech Ladies for a panel discussion on one of the most important topics: self-care!

We will be meeting to hear Nasreen Welden, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and Melissa Acosta, a Certified Nutritionist, Personal Trainer, Pilates and Yoga Instructor, engage in meaningful conversation about self-care and the many ways to ensure you're taking care of YOU first. The panel will be moderated by Tech Ladies Dallas Co-Organizer, Meagan Moakes.

We'll have a raffle for a pack of self-care goodies, lots of Tech Ladies swag and some of the brightest minds in the tech field discussing yoga, counseling, mindfulness and more. Put on those sweats and yoga pants, grab a mat or a blanket and come with questions and an open mind to learn new techniques to take back home to help you thrive.

There will be light snacks, wine and of course, champagne provided by our amazing sponsor and host Dimension Data.

*Because we want to provide our attendees with a safe and vulnerable space to share their thoughts and feelings, please no live recording of any kind during this event*
