November 6 — Life as a Renaissance Woman

According to She Can Magazine, “The modern-day Renaissance woman is multi-talented, inspirational, risk-taking and successful … she can do many things at once because she’s a multitasked individual. Her positive can-do attitude, adaptable multi-faceted abilities, and engaging personality make her a highly desirable commodity in any profession. Wise, authentic and fun-loving, the Renaissance woman also knows how to go with the flow and make the most of life’s opportunities.”  Flora Abramson is a modern-day Renaissance woman.

Without a college education, she has successfully bought and sold businesses, provided leadership in for-profit and nonprofit settings, and volunteered in the community. In this short course, participants will learn about Flora’s leadership, her amazing life and her legacy.
