LinkedIn Local is a meetup concept that allows professionals to connect in person with other LinkedIn users in their local community. As a local host, we are part of a passionate global team, united around the belief that as we engage collaboratively and build authentic community great things happen.

6:30 – 6:45 pm – Welcome + Intros

6:45 – 7:15 pm – Keynote Discussion >>

“Creating Your Best Life” by Caroline Miller; one of the first people in the world to attain a Masters degree in Applied Positive Psychology (University of Pennsylvania) will share 3 main concepts from her evidence-based work in goal-setting and grit that attendees can use immediately to enhance their success:

  • What the research shows about how being happy precedes success across all domains
  • Why authentic self-esteem only comes from pursuing hard goals outside your comfort zone on a daily basis
  • Why all grit isn’t good, and how to know the difference

7:15-8:00 pm – Closing remarks + More networking

A portion of ticket proceeds for this #LinkedInLocal MoCo will be donated to Empowered Women International (EWI); a non-profit formed to unlock the potential of women through the power of entrepreneurship. EWI empowers women in the Greater DC Metro area facing economic and social challenges, including immigrants, refugees, and Americans with low income, to become economically mobile, financially stable and socially engaged.
