“The Need for Legacy Gardens“
During our time together, we hope to inspire participants to believe in their ability to create change by getting involved and reframing what leadership means and looks like, all while leaning into the lessons learned about ourselves with compassion and grace. We can each create legacy wherever we are planted, overcoming challenges and leaving trails of meaningful impact in our wake.
