Crafting a Life that Matters

  • 12 Apr 2017
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Webinar

Presenter: Emily Esfahani Smith 

There's an idea in our culture that living a meaningful life is some grand pursuit—that you have to be a spiritual guru or lifesaving surgeon to count your life as meaningful. Actually, that's not true. Each and every person, regardless of who they are and what they do, can lead a meaningful life. The question is—how? Emily Esfahani Smith draws on the new and growing body of social science research, as well as the stories of ordinary and extraordinary people she interviewed, to reveal what the building blocks of a meaningful life are. In this webinar, she'll share with you some key steps and takeaways to help you lead a richer and deeper life.


Biography: Emily is the author of The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life That Matters (Crown). Her writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Time, The Atlantic, and other publications. Emily is also a columnist for The New Criterion, as well as an editor at the Stanford University's Hoover Institution, where she manages the Ben Franklin Circles project, a collaboration with the 92nd Street Y and Citizen University to build meaning in local communities. Born in Zurich, Switzerland, Emily grew up in Montreal, Canada. She earned a master of applied positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.
