The world needs more warriors...

Warriors are men and women looking to become agents of change for the betterment of their own lives and the world around them. A warrior is someone who is willing to stand up for what is right. A warrior leans into their strengths to overcome the imposter syndrome that might be holding them back. A warrior may be afraid sometimes but continues on with courage when it’s hard to take that first step. A warrior stands up for themselves and others and wants to see their people do well and be heard.

This is our time to dare to rise. Are you ready to become a warrior?

Real world warrior Jenn Donahue will share experiences from her military and civilian career with insights about how she gained traction to overcome barriers and how you can enact change in your own life to achieve your dreams.
