The value of coming together to bond and connect is becoming more apparent by the day. WRISE San Diego believes it is important to continue offering opportunities for our members to connect during this time of physical social distancing. This will be our second virtual gathering of the year. Our first 2020 Book Club event “Own It: The Power of Women at Work” was a success, and in this event we will dive deeper into leading teams and building networks in uncertain times by discussing Brené Brown’s research.

This is a great opportunity to interact with the WRISE community through thought provoking conversation around personal and professional development.

You can purchase Brené’s latest book “Dare to Lead” free on Audio Book here, watch her Ted Talks “The Power of Vulnerability” and “Listening to Shame” and watch her interview on 60 Minutes, as well as her podcast “Unlocking Us”.
