Join us for a thought-provoking webinar that challenges us to question what we often take for granted. Whether you’re an individual, educator, or leader, it’s time to dig deeper and explore the difficult questions about our identities and our relationships with others. Through engaging dialogue, the panelists will guide us on a journey to understand the true meaning of personhood and how we can honor and respect one another. Let’s embark on a path of personal and professional growth as we strive to become the best versions of ourselves and transformative leaders.

By attending this webinar, participants will gain deeper insights into the concept of personhood and its influence on our interactions with others.

The webinar will provide participants with unique tools and strategies to engage in self-reflection.

Participants will also get an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals with the chance to engage in meaningful dialogue, will offer fresh perspectives and inspire attendees to challenge their preconceived notions of personhood.
