Wake Women's Weekend Group 5

A group of Wake Forest Women gathered over dessert in Farrell Hall on the Reynolda Campus as part of Wake Women’s Weekend on March 1, 2019 to discuss Strength.

Themes and highlights of our Call to Conversation:

  • The need to seek discomfort
  • Remembering the kindness of others that can help the uncomfortable not feel so scary
  • Allowing yourself to take strength from others
  • The importance of modeling how to put yourself out there, encouraging others to do the same
  • The ideas of Failure and Recovery:
    • The detriment of not learning how to fail
    • The importance of looking for the lesson and having a persevering spirit
    • The responsibility to share about one’s own failures, helping others understand it is ok to fail
  • The treasure that comes from being brave
