In the midst of tumult, it can be tempting to keep your head down, maintain the status quo and avoid any further disruption. That’s understandable, for a time.

Knowing that “normal” may never be defined quite the same way again, and with living proof that you are more resourceful, creative and resilient than you may have thought possible, it’s time to reenergize for your future.
A great way to reignite your momentum is by registering for the 2021 WFF Leadership Development Workshops
(LDWs), Renewed Purpose. Renewed You.
