Special NAWBO Luncheon Panel Discussion "Power of the Pack"


"Power of the Pack"

Everything in a wolf’s nature tells it to be part of something greater than itself, a pack. 

Yet we as humans seem to struggle with that concept.


Join us for a lively exploration of what it means to be part of a pack: When we actively empower each other we all thrive. 

The conversation will include:

•  What exactly is a wolf pack? How do its members foster each other's success? 

•  Common misconceptions that act as obstacles both personally and professionally; where do we find common ground?

•  The ripple effect of your actions as a pack member, on yourself and others.

•  How as women does our support of each other differ?  What is the feminine perspective?

•  How, now more than ever, we as women supporting other women is key to exponential success.

•  What do we need to do locally to build our pack?

Panelists include:

Carol Kahn, Editor of Sedona Monthly (Moderator)

Betsy Klein, Plan B to Save Wolves

Dev Ross, Emmy Award Winning Writer

Mindy Mendelsohn, Publicist

Susan M. Henkels M.S.W., Relationship RePair
