Conference : Welcoming our vulnerabilities in the workplace

Conference: Welcoming our vulnerabilities in the workplace: a path of inner and collective transformation on April 6, 2021 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm

This online conference organized on April 6 in partnership with Forum 104 is an opportunity to highlight the conditioning of our society that calls us to be efficient, effective and especially to question ourselves on the place to perhaps give back to vulnerability. Wouldn't our personal and collective vulnerabilities, accepted, expressed, shared, welcomed with kindness, allow us to humanize ourselves?

Forum 104 and Fondacio invite you to participate in an online conference on the theme: "Welcoming our vulnerabilities in the workplace: a path of inner and collective transformation".

In this period of global crisis that challenges all our certainties, as a leader:

  • What are the supposed benefits and risks of welcoming and expressing my own vulnerabilities and those of others?
  • To what extent does my assumed vulnerability allow me to become more authentic with myself and more connected with others?

During this evening, we will discover how embracing our vulnerabilities allows us to become more resilient, meaningful, and better contributors to serving the Common Good.

The two speakers for the evening:

  • Marianne de Boisredon
