In partnership with NEWaukee and YPWeek, Concordia University presents Dr. Joey Lynn Bialkowski as she shares insights on living a life filled with purpose.

In our culture, one of the first things people ask when they meet one another is: "What do you do?" Our careers and our lives are inextricably linked. So then, how can you live and work in alignment with your beliefs? How can you balance your passions with the very real need for a paycheck to survive? This session will help start you on your path to find your purpose and set goals to achieve.


This event is especially appropriate for young professionals. It is open to all CUAA and CUW students.
