Application Deadline for YP Summit Extended to Jan. 25

Methodist Health System is a proud corporate sponsor of the 2019 YP (Young Professionals) Summit hosted by the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce on March 15. The application deadline has been extended to Jan. 25.

This annual event, held in Omaha, is for emerging professionals of all ages and from all industries.

The YP Summit brings together 1,500
Omaha-area young professionals to learn, collaborate and become more informed about
their community. You
can expect a day of
change-making keynotes and breakouts designed
to help you grow personally and professionally, learn more about community and convert insight into real, positive action.

We’ve highlighted a few of the day’s sessions below, and there is more great information on the YP Summit website

Grit Meets Mindfulness – The Marriage of Two Perspectives

Let’s discuss the intersectionality of grit and mindfulness in the workplace. It’s about persevering in the midst of challenge with a clear mind and thoughtful response. You’ll leave the session with three practices that can help you shift from mindless reacting to mindful responding during times of stress.

Fueling Purpose in Your Career

Prepare to be challenged to engage in internal and external analysis of your civic engagement and propensity to “activate” in the community. YPs will leave this interactive session with a better understanding of personal stance, the ability to engage with others and an action plan to integrate within their existing professional/personal lives.

Do it Anyway

Whatever success looks like for you, recognize that you also must do the work that most don’t want to do. Every step you take, you may walk into more pressure, more challenges. The question isn’t WILL I experience these things? The question is what you will do WHEN it happens? Let’s talk next-level toughness.

We want strong representation of Methodist Health System in the community!

As part of our event sponsorship, 40 employees will be chosen and approved by senior leadership to represent Methodist at the YP Summit. All Methodist employees in good standing who are interested in attending may apply.

Apply online by Friday, Jan. 25!

All applicants will be notified on Feb. 18 to ensure their availability to attend the YP Summit.

Applications require endorsements from one Methodist leader and one colleague, plus answers to six questions, including: How do you as an employee represent The Meaning of Care? 

Supervisor approval is required to attend.
