Overcoming Challenges, Adversity, and Obstacles

Open Forum

What we'll do

We're gonna do something different this month. We talk a lot about things related to what we do in our careers...usually something about design, development, technology, and such. Rarely though do we talk about ourselves. This will be an open meeting to discuss the challenges, adversity, and obstacles we face in our careers. This could mean a variety of things. Maybe you're dealing with major health issues. Maybe you're an introvert. Perhaps you have colleagues you don't get along with. All of these have an effect on your career. In this meeting, we'll share our experiences as well as the paths we took to overcome them.

While not required, if you have a short presentation you'd like to prepare, send us your name, the name of your presentation/topic, and how much time you need. Here's the current list of people with presentations:

  • Beating Crohn’s with the Apple Watch - Jeff Whitfield
  • Life After Major Medical Diagnosis - Kerri Carter

What to bring

Just yourself along with a story to share. Doesn't have to be prepared. Feel free to raise your hand and talk about your experience.
