The Power of Resilience

  • I love every part of the day, and can't wait to attend again next year.
  • The welcome was warm and friendly, as with all AAWHE events, and this is one of my favorite things about attending. I loved the keynote address and have been reflecting on it since last Thursday. The workshops were great and informative.
