Women’s Networking Association presents “Soul Food: Soul-Care, Good for You and Your Work”

Date: Wednesday, September 13, 2023  |  Time: 12:00 – 1:00pm EST  |  Location: Virtual – Zoom

Event Description

Feeding your soul is just as vital as feeding your body. Join this conversation to explore and expand your connection to moving beyond self-care to soul-care. As busy women and leaders, we often forget to take care of ourselves. We ignore the signs, symbols, and internal nudges to rest; we continue to  “press on” and “get the job done.” It is time to listen to and feed your soul.  Soul care is about prioritizing your well-being while thriving in the way that works for YOU!

Established in 2013, the Women’s Networking Association (WNA) seeks to connect professional women across campus through meaningful and empowering relationships. Providing an opportunity for women to network and support one another is an essential step for building women’s leadership at Michigan State University and in the Greater Lansing community.

WNA hosts monthly seminars which focus on professional development and leadership building. Seminars for AY23/24 will mainly occur on the second Wednesday of each month (besides where indicated as otherwise due to holidays or scheduling conflicts), varying from 12:00-1:00pm and 1:00-2:00pm presentation time slots. WNA programs are open to all but may have particular relevance to women-identifying individuals seeking to advance their careers or develop networking and leadership skills.

Learning Objectives

    • Differentiate the importance between self-care and soul-care
    • Soul-care practices for busy women and leaders
    • Consider resources for feeding your soul and your work
