Grace Institute’s BRAG Party

November 17th, 2017

WBC Volunteers and Grace Women Hone their BRAG

WBC volunteers partnered with the Grace Institute to underwrite its Fall 2017 BRAG party event and to excel in the art of the BRAG. Each participant aced the skill of communicating with confidence under the guidance by Peggy Klaus, an internationally known speaker, author and Brag-ologist. WBC volunteers and Grace women worked in pairs and groups throughout the day to master self promotion and getting over the impostor syndrome. The inspiration of the experience is long-lasting for WBC volunteers. According to Angelique Ahmed from KPMG, “What an inspiring morning spent in the company of these incredibly resilient Grace women! I left in awe of their incredible optimism and strength, despite all the challenges they have had to overcome.”

In addition, the impact on Grace women is clear. In the words of Denise Byrd, a WBC volunteer from Broadridge Financial Solutions, “I had the distinct pleasure of volunteering along with other WBC members at Grace…check out the amazing work that Grace Institute and their student participants are achieving.”

WBC volunteers also have the opportunity to advance their own BRAG skills because they gain strategies, tools, and techniques for conquering the little voice inside their head that whispers self-defeating thoughts. According to Ann Hynek, WBC volunteer from Morgan Stanley, “Working with such a courageous group of women at the BRAG Party was a great reminder that it’s more than ok to be proud of yourself and your accomplishments. In fact, it’s a necessity that ultimately makes it that much easier to be proud of others and genuinely happy for their success.”

We are very proud of our partnership with Grace!
