Event Recap: ‘Practicing for Life’ Event 1: The Power of Vulnerability

Just wanted to send out a recap for any of y’all who weren’t able to attend the event on Friday.
We started out with a check-in about messiness and what in our lives left us feeling vulnerable. We followed that up with Brene Brown’s TED talk “The Power of Vulnerability”. After watching the video, here are some questions we discussed:
What is the difference between insecurity and vulnerability?
 
What are some practical ways to acknowledge and practice vulnerability?
 
How is vulnerability gendered?
 
Some important takeaways included the idea that vulnerability is a daily practice and that by being vulnerable first, we make space for others to practice vulnerability. Thanks to everyone who came, and if you couldn’t make it, consider watching the TED talk anyway!
Please come through for our next event next Friday, 2/10 at 4 PM for a discussion about resilience.
If you have any questions, concerns or feedback surrounding this series of events, please email Lucas at blawrenc@stanford.edu.
