Perfectly Imperfect

Join in for an hour of light-hearted storytelling. Dana will share her story and perspective on how she used her day job as a platform for her dream job. She’ll also chat about embracing anonymity in order to make big, making necessary mistakes, and remaining teachable as one grows and matures in their career.

This presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, July 30th. Time and venue will be announced at a later date. Keep an eye on the special events schedule for updated information.
