Women’s Initiative Book Club: Daring Greatly by Brené Brown


A Virtual “Book” Club for the Professional Woman

Wednesday, December 9  |  7:30 pm

Join the Professional Society’s Women’s Initiative to discuss Brené Brown’s book Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead. We will engage in small-group discussions about how Brené’s call to lean into vulnerability can enhance our ability to live courageous and wholehearted personal and professional lives.

Register for one of three breakout sessions:

  1. Daring Leadership
  2. Daring Working Parenting
  3. Daring Resilience during Times of Crisis

No time to read or listen to a book? Here are some other options:

  • Listen to one or more Brené Brown podcasts (series is called “Unlocking Us”)
  • Watch the TED Talk: The Power of Vulnerability
  • Watch the Netflix documentary “Brené Brown: The Call to Courage”

  • No time to read/watch anything? Please come anyway!
