Event description

Description

Join YNPN Atlanta for a panel discussion on Tuesday, September 12th, jumping off from the themes of the National Conference.

Leading Through Change can mean a variety of things: leading through changing coworkers and management; leading through tough political times; leading through organizational structure changes. Although in many ways, this event is a follow-up conversation to the YNPN National Conference in August, it will still be entirely relevant for those who were not able to attend the August events.

Hear from Simone Price of TechBridge, Deanna Anderson of the Junior League of Atlanta, and Vanja Pantic Oflazoglu of Welcoming America talk about their experiences leading through change and what has (and hasn't) worked for them.

YNPN Atlanta members, check your Benefits Page for access to your Member discount for this event!

We will be meeting for a tour of the Flatiron Building at 6 p.m. and then continue to have a conversation and Q & A with the panelists.
