TEDxWilmington will host a salon and networking event on Tuesday, September 19 at 1007 N. Orange St. The event is sponsored by Accelerate Delaware, which works to attract and retain young professionals in the state.
The salon is titled “Adulting 101: Finding Your Path in Life” and will feature talks on work-life balance, personal finance and how to find purpose and passion as an adult.
