Designing A Life Worth Living Workshop
Purpose, passion and pleasure bring forth power and potential. When we are clear on our purpose, passionate about what we are doing, and derive pleasure in the process, we are empowered to tap into our full potential.
If you were to stop right now and assess your life, what words would you use to describe it? What images flood your mind? Are they positive and empowering? Does your life reflect a purpose? Are you passionate and inspired? Are you doing things that please you? What images do you see in your future?
More often than not, we allow circumstances to give our life meaning versus orchestrating our circumstances in order to have the life we dream of having. This workshop helps you explore what drives you in terms of purpose, passion and pleasure and gives you some tools to design a life that is worth living.

Navigating Corporate America as a Minority Professional
This seminar is designed to address the unique challenges and topics that minority professionals face in Corporate America today. The goal of the seminar is to have a candid and thought-provoking discussion with accomplished minority executives from different industries centered on what skills are necessary to be able to realize your full potential.
We plan to have a 5-10 minute introduction session followed by a 40 minute response session to pre-determined questions from the attendees. The seminar will conclude with a 10 minute Q&A session which will be opened to the audience to ask any questions that were not previously addressed by the panel.
The AAMBAA leadership team believes this seminar will help us in our goal of providing minority Booth students programming that will increase their level of success in the workforce. We hope that you will be able to join us.
