National Philanthropist to Lead Workshop on Dealing With Life's Challenges
Medical emergencies, financial stress, a dysfunctional workplace, family struggles. Life can be challenging.
Seattle author and philanthropist Judy Pigott says the key to coping with life’s challenges is a personal safety net.
“With your plans, resources and people identified and informed, your whole life is more secure and connected, replacing fear and isolation with security and community,” says Pigott.
Pigott will share her personal safety nets concept at a workshop scheduled for Monday, September 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. in Callen Conference Center on the Nebraska Wesleyan University campus. A light meal will be served from 5:30-6 p.m.
Pigott pioneered the Personal Safety Nets® concept, which helps people prepare for life’s changes and challenges by helping them weave together resources that create a more caring, connected, community-minded circle of friends, family, and workplaces.
Pigott has presented Personal Safety Nets® workshops and seminars across the country to organizations like Americorps, United Way, and Rotary.
Pigott — along with her Personal Safety Nets® co-founder John W. Gibson — have authored the book, Getting Ready for Life’s Inevitable Changes and Challenges.
The workshop is free and open to the public. Callen Conference Center is located on the lower level of the Smith-Curtis Administration Building.
