2018-2019 Annual Theme: Own It! Empowering Your Career & Your Life

Take charge of your future by exploiting your strengths with confidence and fine-tuning your skills to ask for what you want and need. Our theme this year brings you curated events and workshops in the Boston area to learn from, and network with, other leaders (especially women) in science and technology. These events will encourage you to discover your real-self and will help you crystallize future plans by focusing on how to strategically position and promote yourself with the right people at the right times.

Redefining Success - Bring Your Values Alive at Work: Discover What Success Means to You!
December 5, 2018, 8:00 - 9:30 AM

What does it mean to have it all? Whose definition of success is driving your career? Are you struggling to define what “Success means to me”? In this interactive workshop, we will use the principles of Appreciative Inquiry—a model of organizational change that focuses on your strengths and your values—to gain insights into what matters most to you in your career, and in your day-to-day experience.

You will gain clarity about what excites and energizes you. If you are not fully engaged in your current role, it may be because you are not tapping into all your strengths. We will explore ways to incorporate your strengths and your values more intentionally in your role. You will discover if your role is fully aligned with your values—and what shifts you can make—to reprioritize your goals to align with your values, and find deeper satisfaction and success in your career. 

Locationbluebird bio, 60 Binney Street, 10th Floor, Aviary Room, Cambridge, MA 02142

Cost: $10 for members, $25 for non-members
