Here’s a recap of Emma and Abadesi’s salon session:
Exploring The Different Forms of Resilience: The hosts encouraged members to delve into the various forms that resilience can take. Sharing personal stories and offering advice from their career journeys as women in entrepreneurship, the group created a supportive safe space for the women in attendance to open up about their experiences and use thier stories to help each other overcome personal and professional challenges.
Understanding When to Push Through And When To Rest: Resilience doesn't mean pushing through every obstacle blindly. Emma and Abadesi taught participants to recognise when it's essential to be resilient and persevere, as well as when it's vital to rest and set boundaries for self-care.
The Power of a Diem Salon: The salon discussion was a unique experience for many who attended. It was an extension of Diem’s mission to empower women through powerful community conversations. The discussion was a testament to the strength of the Stack World community, where members came together to share their stories of resilience and determination, inspiring others to continue fostering a supportive and empowering community.
Abadesi's words reflect the importance of this conversation: "For me, a talk about resilience is a talk about surviving in an industry that has often made me feel like I have no right to be there. I have faced animosity from every kind of person…so I do my best to share what I have learned unfiltered, so other brave and ambitious folks can navigate the minefield that is the workplace."
For those who couldn't attend this session in person, you can now watch the replay of the session on Stack TV.
