About the Series: Sharing, Caring, and Daring
What greater gift to give than to share, care, and dare together? At Kirkridge, that is one of our hopes in 2021 and beyond. We want our ever-expanding community to share their stories, hear the wisdom in the room, and learn from other’s daring adventures.
These conversational discussions will include a facilitated Q&A and open forum for conversation with the guest speaker(s) and among those attending with a little bit of charming storytelling! Through this series, we’ll engage with new ideas, promote emerging leader’s work, and encourage each other to think boldly!
