Empower & Connect Women Series
Wednesday, Feb. 4, 5:30 p.m.
Student Union Galaxy Rooms B & C, SU 2.602

The theme of this year's series is "Thrive: Redefining Success Through Wonder and Giving," based on the book Thrive by Arianna Huffington, chair, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group. In her book, Huffington posits that the pursuit of money and power has led to burnout, stress-related illnesses, and loss in the quality of relationships, family life and careers. In the fall, part one of the series focused on redefining success through well-being and wisdom. Part two will focus on the two additional pillars suggested by Huffington: wonder and giving.

Join us for dinner and insightful conversations followed by a panel discussion.
