Cornell Law School Alumni Association and the Mary Kennedy Brown
Society Present: "Working from Purpose"

 
It’s a question we all ask at one point or another in our professional lives – “why do we do what we do?” In particular, why do we do the work that, for many of us, occupies most of our waking hours for our entire adult lives, and how can we be sure that work aligns with our professional and personal goals.
 
Join Risa M. Mish, BS ’85, JD ’88, Professor of Practice of Management, Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, as she walks you through an exercise designed to identify what you personally stand for, and how you might manifest that, both in your work and outside of it.
