May 18, 2020April Event: Cultivating Resilience in Uncertain Times Posted By : Natalie Howatson/ 0 comments / Under : Uncategorized On April 29, 2020, 25 women gathered virtually for the IPWA April Event: Cultivating Resilience in Uncertain Times. The speaker for this event was Carla Fleharty, a career member of the Foreign Service, currently working at the US Embassy in Santiago. She shared with the group many tips for cultivating resilience in three main areas: 1. resilience within ourselves 2. resilience in small teams (friends/family/coworkers) 3. resilience in large teams (coworkers and the larger community). Carla brought up many great points including the importance of mindfulness, maintaining a routine, staying active, and staying connected. Many IPWA members shared their own experiences and advice during three discussion sessions. This was a wonderful way to connect and bring the amazing women of IPWA together. Thanks to all who attended and shared their wise words. A huge thanks to Carla for being such a great presenter and to the IPWA Committee for putting together a wonderful virtual event. Keep an eye out for what’s to come in May!
