What’s Your Story?

Inspired by Caleen’s keynote, we’ll briefly explore how to create empowering spaces for story sharing. We’ll split into small groups for connecting, networking, and giving each other the gift of a listening ear and a story shared. This will be a chance for practical application of the keynote address. No preparation is necessary.
