FAIL! - Inspiring Resilience

FAIL! - Inspiring Resilience

Wednesday, April 03, 2019 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Huntington Hall (10-250)

How many times have you suffered from the notion that “failure is not an option”? Yet, a misstep can happen at any time and to everyone, even professionals, experts, CEO’s, or professors. For this reason, we bring them to FAIL!, an event aimed at understanding the deeper meaning of failures, and how to accept, understand, and conquer these.
On April 3rd at 6 pm, we will have brilliant guests from MIT and Harvard like:

Amy Edmondson: Harvard Business School

Amanda Bosh: MIT Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences

Susan Silbey: MIT Anthropology

Regina Bateson: MIT Political Science

Former FAIL! Speaker, Professor Daniel Jackson, will return to the conference to speak about his FAIL! experience and his book Portraits of Resilience, and every attendee will receive a free copy.

The event will be hosted by Kirsty Bennett from MIT Women's League and moderated by Marcia Bartusiak from MIT Science Writing program, and is organized by the FAIL! Organizing Team. We also thank the MIT MindHandHeart, the Graduate Student Council, the Teaching and Learning Lab, and the Sandbox Initiative Fund for their sponsorship.
