Adversity is part of the human experience. Challenges like the death of a loved one, a relationship ending, a job loss or a health crisis can shake us to our core and threaten to tear us apart. The good news is that resilience is also part of the human experience—finding a way through life’s challenges and even growing stronger because of them.
In this inspirational presentation, motivational speaker and author Carole Starr will share her resilience-inspired photographs. She’ll be joined by her colleagues, Rorie Lee and Bethany Bryan, to discuss strategies for building resilience.
