How to Accomplish More by Doing Less
The East Bay Chapter for the Association for Women in Science is excited to partner with the UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center to present this event. Carter will share the latest research on productivity and elite performance. Using surprising science and lively anecdotal evidence, Carter offers a practical game plan for mitigating stress by working with our brain’s innate hard-wiring to increase happiness, balance, and ultimately, success.

She’ll discuss:
• What happens to our brain when we tip into overwhelm
• Why some digital habits make us less productive (even as they make us feel harder working)
• Easy-to-implement strategies to harness the power of your unconscious mind

Event registration includes dinner and a paperback copy of “The Sweet Spot.” Discounted rates for AWIS members and students.

It’s summer at the university, so parking is easy! Berkeley city street parking is free after 6pm. This event is easy to get to from Downtown Berkeley BART. For transportation options, see here.
