FAIL! - Inspiring Resilience

Friday, October 18, 2019 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Huntington Hall (10-250)

Have you ever felt your productivity and creativity hindered by the constant pressure of an environment where “failure is not an option”? A misstep can happen to everyone.

FAIL! is an event aimed at embracing the deeper meaning of failures and learning how to make the most of them. Through the stories of personal and professional life shared by renowned speakers, you will be challenged to look at failures differently, learning how to accept, understand, and conquer them, rather than giving up or ignore the lessons they can provide us with.

Come and join the next edition of FAIL! at MIT, featuring exceptional individuals sharing their personal and professional failures:

-Eva Wolfnagel, journalist and Knight Science Fellow

-Ramesh Raskar, Professor and head of the Camera Culture Lab, MIT,

-Rodney Mullen, professional skateboarder, entrepreneur, and inventor,

-Ronald Kessler, Professor of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School,

-Sara Saeger, Professor of Physics and Planetary Science at MIT,

-Yang Shao-Horn, Professor of Material Science and Engineering at MIT

Additionally, John Werner, curator of TEDxBeaconStreet will be our special guest. The event will be hosted by Raymond Coderre, director of People Development at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. The conference will be followed by a reception dinner, discussion tables and more!!

Come and be inspired!
