Give yourself a gift this holiday season by geting an EPIP membership so you can develop as a change agent for good. Be sure to spread some joy. Paying it forward to others and acts of kindness make this world a better place. (#26Acts)
But be sure to give yourself a gift too. YOU MATTER!
Philanthropy is about helping others. But as our members point out in this video growing yourself is the best way to become empowered to give more. Flight attendants instruct, “Please secure your oxygen mask before attempting to help others.” There is wisdom in these words. Self care is an important part of career development.
Make getting an EPIP membership your New Year’s resolution. If you are a member, be intentional about using EPIP as a platform for your professional growth. LEAD!
We wish you and your loved ones…
