Rebecca Irby

During the event, Rebecca will explore what Heart-Centered Leadership is through several interactive activities. Come prepared to move and connect deeply with yourself and others.

Attendees will take a look at Interconnectivity - Empathy - Compassion - Revolutionary Love

Rebecca will share her background on how she used her North Star and came to found and lead an international NGO that just received Special Consultative Status with the United Nations. She will lead exercises to help you find your North Star and learn how to use that as your guide throughout the rest of your time in school and, most importantly, moving forward in an integrated, fulfilled way. Subtle shifts in our mindset can lead to significant transformation. You will walk away from this session with a greater sense of yourself, the world, and how to navigate it.
