ENVISION Empowerment Experience @ Self Help- Temple Building
Jan 7 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

This year’s theme “Take Flight” is a follow-up to the highly successful ENVISION event held on January 10, 2016. We will discuss ways to keep your energy and passions high as you navigate your way through the upcoming year. This half-day experience on Saturday, January 7, 2017 will allow women to: 1) reflect on their personal and professional goals, 2) explore the lens through which women define and express themselves, and 3) explore opportunities to network with other attendees. As part of this experience, women will create vision boards, engage in reflective conversations, and enjoy a little pampering complements of a local masseuse. An addition to this year’s ENVISION event is a “No Pressure” Networking Happy Hour in partnership with the American Heart Association. Pillar Consulting staff will offer specialized professional development and networking strategies, while AHA staff will offer educational resources and on-site blood pressure screening. Attendees will also be provided with opportunities to join AHA’s Check. Change. Control® program which offers structured support through blood pressure monitoring and management. Bring your sister, daughter, friend, coworker, aunt–whoever you’d like to join you on this adventure! Whether you are a first time #ENVISIONer or a veteran, we’re excited to have you join the fun! You do NOT want to miss this event!
