Laura Thoren Podesta, a 2006 Darien High School graduate and now a CBS News correspondent, will speak at the next Darien Community Association Women’s Luncheon.
The title of her talk: “Embracing Rejection — Lessons on the word ‘No.’”
— an announcement from the Darien Community Association
Podesta will discuss how rejections from colleges, certain promotions, jobs, and even day-to-day obstacles ended up helping her career.
Laura will talk about how – at face value – rejection can sting, but it can also help you get to where you want to go faster.
