Recap of the ACIC Inaugural Book Club Meeting
The first ACIC Book Club Meeting, organized by Erika Finn and Josephine Vashi, was a great success! The Club discussed Alison Levine’s book, On The Edge, which weaved concrete leadership insights into her journey through various extreme environments ranging from climbing Mt. Everest to skiing to the South Pole. The members discussed all aspects of the book, and the conversation was engaging and inspiring, and allowed an opportunity to learn a bit more about fellow members. There was much positive feedback and we will be continuing this Book Club in the upcoming months. Please stay tuned for an announcement of the details for the next Book Club Meeting; we would love to see you there!
