General Session: 3 CRP & 3 GMS/GMS-T
Each passing year brings it share of experiences, growth and change. One constant in our lives remains the holidays we celebrate and the traditions that surround them. This years Fall Conference focused on "culture" woven through our day and how very different we are not. The day began with a Corporate-Only Round table session attended by our Corporate Global Mobility members where they had the opportunity to discuss and share the latest topics in our industry. Our Keynote Speaker, Wokie Nwabueze, spoke about moving beyond the stereotypes that stand in the way of authentic leadership, belonging, collaboration and organizational success. Our afternoon began with our Community Outreach Program presented by Sara Simonetti "The Bag Project" which was followed by our Cross Cultural Social Mixer lead by Mercedes Naficy D'Angelo. Have you ever wondered what it feels like to socialize in a completely international setting with people from many different countries? Well, our members had the opportunity to do so by a cultural mixer simulation during this session. Our last session of the day was a vigorous and competitive "Match Game" lead by Allyson V. Stewart. Attendees were challenged to match the answers of global mobility celebrities in a game of fill-in-the missing blank. Fun was had by everyone with a grand prize for the winning table! The day concluded with our traditional Cocktail Reception with raffle prizes. It was a great day enjoyed by over 120 attendees!
