Our presenter will be Dr. Faye Wachs, Prof. of Sociology at CalPoly Pomona, who recently interviewed over 100 persons with facial paralysis as part of a year-long research study. She will share from her findings on the impact of facial differences on our career and professional lives.

Dr. Wachs, along with psychotherapist Judy Baer, will provide practical tips for navigating job interviews, communicating in the workplace, and dealing with social functions. We will also take time for sharing and networking within the group.

As an added bonus, professional photographer Joy Orosky will be present to take complimentary head shot photos for our attendees! These photos will be appropriate to use for business cards, resumes and social media, and each participant will receive two poses to be taken that morning.
