The Strengths Celebration was a two-day event for employees of the Santa Monica – Malibu Unified School District office in May 2022. The participatory program focused on the science of well-being and the concept of character strengths, trait-like positive qualities that reflect our values.
I was contracted by EdFam™—a group of facilitators, practitioners, and experienced educators all trained in the application of positive psychology—to help bring a new dimension of fun, guest-focused experience to the delivery of their professional development content. I was involved in the design of the Strengths Celebration from conception to execution and consulted on everything from invitation communications to the agenda and playful, purposeful activities.
