Leading Lives of Purpose:
The Science of Discerning your Calling and Work for a Lifetime
Join Us with Bryan Dik

Friday, October 16, 2020 – 7:00 pm EDT
Saturday, October 17, 2020 – 12:00 pm EDT

What is your vision for vocation? If that sounds like a theological or aspirational question, it is not. Today researchers across the academic spectrum measure meaning at work and how that informs career success, fulfilment, and self-worth. ASA Fellow Bryan Dik, a specialist in vocational psychology, has spent years in the theoretical landscape and literature of work. What gives us meaning? Does it matter that we find purpose in our work lives? These and many more questions inform the academic field of calling and vocation.

But, wait a minute! Calling and vocation have always been a young person’s game, right? These questions come up early in life and are settled. Shortly after graduation, we find our primary place and get on with it. After that comes retirement.

Today's research is challenging the typical timeline we think of for vocation. It is not only a decision of youth. In the dynamics of a globalized economy, adaptation and change are the new constants. We stay in school longer, marry later, move more frequently, cycle through multiple careers and retire earlier (or even later). Now we hear “60 is the new 40,” and for everyone there is adaption in the dynamics of the workplace.

Join us in October for Leading Lives of Purpose. Together with Bryan we will explore the dynamics of our careers in the sciences. Register now and we can send you an autographed copy of Bryan’s new book Redeeming Work: A Guide to Discovering God’s Calling for Your CareerQuantities are limited to the first 100 registrants.
