    EWS - Investing with Purpose with Sarah Hinman

    EWS - Investing with Purpose with Sarah Hinman

    We are extremely excited to have Sarah Hinman for our March 9th Empower Women conversation, Investing with Purpose. It’s no secret that COVID-19 altered the world as we know it, including the investment universe. With ESG (environmental, social, governance) investing already trending upward pre-pandemic, this public health crisis and its subsequent economic impact seems to have accelerated this development with no signs of slowing. During this interview we focused on Mission-Aligned Investing™, we walked through the key areas that we believe are necessary to understanding the benefits, drawbacks, limits and opportunities with this type of investment.

    EWS - Come Back to Love During the Time of COVID with Robyn Vogel

    EWS - Come Back to Love During the Time of COVID with Robyn Vogel

    We were excited to have Robyn Vogel back to lead our February event, Come Back To Love During The Time of Covid. I think it’s safe to say we’d all like to forget that 2020 ever happened. Our work lives and home lives were flipped upside down literally overnight. With safety protocols and restrictions put in place we’ve been spending most of, if not all of our time with our significant others, which can put a strain on your relationship. Robyn talked about how to navigate a loving relationship with ease instead of conflict during a time when couples are now doing everything under one roof!
    Robyn Vogel, MA is a psychotherapist, certified relationship and sex coach and creator of Come back to Love® and the Come Back To Love® Affair Recovery program. Robyn integrates and shares traditional psychological principles with spiritual and tantric philosophy and practice. She teaches but also demonstrates how to master the skills of intimacy and the art of living a life filled with love no matter what. Robyn’s superpower is intimacy. And when it comes to healing after the devastation of an affair or betrayal, Robyn’s non-judgemental, presence and love are bar none. Her program is receiving accolades across the globe with couples returning to a loving connection (a new and improved one) that is built on trust and joy!
