Neuroscience of Connecting: How an Authentic Connection with Yourself Changes Everything
Thursday, May 26, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm CDT – ONLINE
Current research says that how you connect with others as an adult was hardwired into your brain as a child based on messages received growing up. In this interactive online workshop, the Wright Foundation co-founder Dr. Judith Wright, will give you the tools you need to reshape those beliefs and create a more purposeful connection with everyone around you, starting with you! You’ll learn how to recognize hardwired beliefs from your past holding you back, use neuroscientific tools to reshape the way you connect, and create deeper, more authentic connections at work and home.
The Power Of Our Purpose
Wednesday, June 8, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Union League Club of Chicago, 65 West Jackson Blvd., Chicago
There is a parallel path between what young girls and women are facing today. Whether it’s becoming your best self, finding joy, navigating the unknown or struggling with mental well-being, the issues that are affecting us as adult women are the same as those having an impact on our young girls. To change or even better – disrupt – this path, Nancy Wright, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, will speak about three ways we can work to accomplish this based on her personal learnings and role in leading young girls.
