Changemaker Mindsets | Session 1: Self-Compassion & Self-Awareness

November 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PST

2021 Spring Accelerator Cohort

Changemaker Mindsets: Self-Growth Strategies for Aspiring Community Leaders

During this interactive 3-part workshop series, you will explore some of the mindsets that can help you become a more effective community leader: taking risks, developing self-awareness, and practicing self-compassion. At VIA, we believe that these mindsets are the foundation for creating positive change.

This workshop series might be for you if…

  • You are a student looking for ways to further grow and step outside of your comfort zone
  • You are a working professional seeking to make a bigger impact in your community
  • You want to work more collaboratively and effectively on teams – whether at work, school, or club activities
  • You have an idea for creating change and want feedback from like-minded people

You will get a taste of what it’s like to join a VIA program, whether Exploring Social Innovation (ESI)Exploring Health Care (EHC) or the Social Impact Leadership Accelerator, and those who attend this workshop series will be given priority consideration when applying to any VIA program.

Session 1: Self-Compassion & Self-Awareness

Nov 12 (Fri) 6:00-7:30 PM US Pacific Time

An important step in making an impact in your community is understanding your own values, needs, and motivations as a changemaker. Join this 90-minute interactive workshop aimed at helping you explore ways to increase your self-compassion and self-awareness so that you are better equipped to serve others.
