I had the fortune of attending the 2019 Watermark Conference with my co-workers from WePay (a JPMC company). It was an empowering day thinking of what is possible! I was inspired by Dr. Brene Brown's opening remarks. There is no courage without vulnerability, and as storytellers, we can own our story.
As a working mom of two teenagers, I’m always juggling competing demands. As such, I think of shortcuts and ways to hack the system. Dr. Brene Brown’s talk showed that our brain makes up stories to cope, but if we train our brain to create stories filled with curiosity and engagement, in turn, those stories will temper our fear and generate encouragement and empowerment.
Check out WePay’s blog where all of us who attended shared our thoughts and learnings from the day – WePay Watermark blog.
Maya Angelou captured what is possible: “Each time a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for all women.”
May we achieve more and solve deep-rooted issues together instead of being divided by our tribal tendencies.
