Pause for Purpose is a one-hour discussion that meets every Wednesday 4-5 PM EST via Zoom. Guests are featured who live their purpose by pursuing their dreams. They are involved in causes that matter, from entrepreneurship to personal enjoyment and all points in between. Subjects explored range from tracking bears in Alaska, to updating COVID vaccines. From causes born of personal and professional loss, to cancer research. And "golfing for change" that partners black and white golfers that they might learn more about each other.

The more sessions we facilitate, the more exciting ideas we capture with our members, enabling our pause for purpose to inspire yours!
