THRIVE: Strategies to Foster Resilience and Well-Being  
Sponsored by: BrownWinick Law Firm

Every day a community is hit by a hardship that impacts everyone who lives there. This has never been more true as we walk through the shadow of a global pandemic. With so many people struggling to overcome adversity, it can be overwhelming to know how to help or where to start. Join us to learn practical, research-based ways to strengthen yourself, your team, and your community. 

In this keynote, Dr. Mollie Marti, founding CEO of Worldmaker International, shares the THRIVE Resilience Model™ as a map to grow your own resilience and help others navigate adversity. This presentation will provide small practices that can make a big difference in amplifying what you already do on a daily basis to care for others. Working together, we can create environments that support strength, healing, and growth through even the greatest challenges.
