Rediscovering Work: Workshop and Luncheon

You spend the best hours of your life at work. It is easy for days and weeks to blur and for our work to be reduced to transactions. Join colleagues for a luncheon and workshop to reframe work as an opportunity to grow into the particular person you are designed to be. By cultivating virtue through what we do, we build additional layers of meaning beyond our output into the best hours of our lives. Learn how Pepperdine provides the freedom of all community members to work and live authentically in support of our mission. A delicious Bon Appetit lunch will be provided following the workshop. Space is limited.
