Join YCP Atlanta on Tuesday, August 16th for an Executive Panel Discussion event, featuring Tony Frese, Fr. Neil Dhabliwala, and Christine Lacayo who will speak on the spiritual value of work.
The YCP Executive Panel Discussion fosters a focused conversation about living virtuously in the workplace. Three panelists will lead the discussion about the spiritual value of work and how your particular profession could contribute to the Kingdom of Christ.
Afterwards, table leaders bring the discussion down to the individual level. At the end of the evening, representatives from each table share their collective insights with the rest of the group.
Christine is a multilingual content writer helping mission-driven brands build their audience and grow their brand awareness using brand storytelling through a multicultural lens.
While receiving her Master's in Environmental Management and Sustainable Development at St. Edward's University, she learned about the mission and values of the founders of her alma mater, The Congregation of Holy Cross. A Holy Cross education helped her to embrace a regenerative lifestyle through the lens of the Catholic faith: the importance of building community, connecting people back into nature, living your faith in action, and working together for the common good.
After working for the past 6 years with various environmental non-profits around the world helping them increase their brand awareness through communications and community building, she decided she wanted to start her own business as a writer to help other mission-driven companies make a deeper impact through consistent content writing and multicultural marketing. She also has a blog where she shares tips on content writing, multicultural marketing, and the intersections of living a life in faith while caring for our common home.
