WERC’s Constellation Building Event: Building Resilience in Times of Change

The Capital District Women’s Employment & Resource Center (WERC) is excited to bring a timely, creative, and interactive program to our community on Tuesday, October 5, 2021 at the Hilton Garden Inn Troy at 235 Hoosick Street from 11:30am to 1:30pm. The program is entitled WERC’s Constellation Building Event: Building Resilience in Times of Change.

Kat Koppett, a 25-year improv veteran, actress, author and founder of Koppett., will guide us through a fun and inspirational program where she will share improv and storytelling techniques to build resilience.

This past year has proven there is no certainty in life. However, resilience, mindfulness, and meaning are keys to thriving in the best and worst of times. These attributes are not acquired, but rather, skills and mindsets that must be practiced.

This program will focus on collective as well as individual resilience, covering topics such as: accepting uncertainty, managing negative self-talk, exercising spontaneity, being present, focusing on your partner, and supporting the “scene” you are in.

“We hope that you will join us on October 5, 2021 with your team, leadership, family, and friends,” said Elizabeth Miller Guthier, WERC’s Executive Director. “This program will build your own resilience and inspire those around you to do the same!”

Tickets are $60 per person and sponsorships are still available. WERC would like to share our deepest gratitude to all our generous supporters. Without our sponsors and donors, this event would not be possible. One hundred percent of donations go towards supporting the mission of WERC - advancing women's success in the workplace by building their economic and personal independence. Register at:
