Thrive! Presents Champions for Change: Charting Your Roadmap in Times of Uncertainty

Some choices define us, create memories, and chart our future trajectory. Join Micki Kidder (Vice President for University Enterprises and Events and mother of three) as she facilitates a conversation on how to outline a roadmap to maximize your happiness, joy, and satisfaction.
While the past few months have pushed us to redefine how we balance our roles (mothers, wives, sisters, colleagues, friends, etc.), Micki looks forward to discussing how we can use this time to find a sense of calmness in the journey, and rediscover our personal and professional paths.
When: Fri. May 15 at 12 p.m.
Where: Zoom. The link will be sent via Google Calendar invitation

There will be a follow-up session on May 29th at 12 p.m. You're warmly invited to join in a conversation with the women of Notre Dame as we navigate these challenging times. The Thrive! Professional Development and Networking committee is here for you to follow up on your next steps.
