TYP ENGAGE is a platform for thought leadership and facilitated discussion that brings together influential and passionate young professionals throughout Greater Tucson.

At our first ENGAGE of 2024, we’re focusing on Personal Advocacy, and each of our ability to activate our individual agency. Agency is the ability and power to make decisions in a way that exercises control over one’s life, and is the backbone of effective advocacy.

We’ll start with a keynote from Heather Hiscox, CEO of PAUSE for Change and author of No More Status Quo.Followed by a panel of TYP and community members: Anissa Brown,: Founder & CEO of Goalsetters Career & Workforce Development, Caryn Paye: Disability Advocate and Community Organizer, and Rocque Perez: Executive Director of the Metropolitan Education Commission. They will each share their own experiences engaging with Personal Advocacy in their personal and professionals lives. Then Heather will facilitate a 90-minute workshop around her PAUSE for Change Framework, giving attendees tactical skills to pause and make change in their everyday lives.
