Workshop: Where Career and Calling Intersect
Being hired as an Executive Director at 26 years old was never ‘the plan’. But, when you identify what you were created to do, God will open the doors of opportunity in ways you never imagined. How do you find your true vocational calling and live a life of purpose? How do you embrace life in the workplace, and potentially in leadership, as a woman? Where does faith intersect with business? This breakout session will provide practical ways to identify your purpose and bring meaning to your chosen career.
Alexia Wood is the Executive Director of St. John’s Homeless Shelter, the Micah Center, and Wellspring.
