  • Executive Panel Discussion November 2018

    Executive Panel Discussions are quarterly events focused on living virtuously in the workplace. Three panelists lead a discussion about a particular virtue and what it means to practice that virtue in daily life. Afterwards, table leaders bring the discussion down to the individual level. At the end of the evening, a representative from each table shares their collective insights with the rest of the group. The panel events are a great way to get to know other members of the YCP community at a deeper level, while at the same time exploring how we can become more virtuous in our own lives.

    All young adults in their 20s and 30s, single or married, and in any profession or industry are invited.

    7:00pm - Networking
    7:30pm - Panel Discussion
    8:20pm - Small Group Discussion
    9:00pm - Closing Prayer
