Power in Vulnerability: a Community Dialogue on Being Human
April 20, 2016 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
Have you ever experienced Impostor Syndrome at MIT?
Do you find it difficult to express vulnerability?
Many of us would answer ‘yes’ to these questions… but it is imperative to recognize that MIT’s “culture of suffering” is a challenging proposition. In addition to encouraging members of our community to perform and produce, we must take time to acknowledge and embrace our humanity. Herein lies the power of vulnerability — to express our authentic selves, to realize purpose in our lives, and to dispel the misconception that being human is a liability.
The power of vulnerability lies in its capacity to help us grow and to more fully love ourselves and others. Inspiration for this topic comes from the TED Talk of social scientist Brené Brown.
Please join us in a Community Dialogue on April 20th on Power in Vulnerability. We ask that you RSVP. All members of the MIT community are welcome! Lunch will be served — please inform us of any dietary restrictions or preferences.
When: Wednesday, April 20 (11:45am – 1pm)
Where: MIT Room W20-407 (Student Center)
Events are open to all community members. We welcome people of every identity, ability/disability, and background, and will strive to meet all needs for full participation.
