STRIDE Leadership Program 

UNIV Inspire 

The UNIV Inspire workshop is an experience that is authentically human. It’s an international encounter in Rome, geared towards young women seeking new perspectives on life, faith, and meaningful work. Participants from dozens of countries have the opportunity to explore, reflect, and discover together, convinced that each person is uniquely gifted and called to be a catalyst of transformation, renewing the world from within.

UNIV 2022 Theme: The Happiness Paradox

In the last half century we have plumbed the depths of space and sequenced the human genome, but we still struggle to answer two simple questions:

What is happiness and how can I increase it?


From Socrates to Sartre, no philosopher has been indifferent to the question of human flourishing; it is the hidden premise of all advertising and the reason for every medical consultation. 

In this edition of UNIV Inspire, we will explore the big questions on the subject of happiness.
