Shape Your Cape Summit: Recap and Photo Round-Up!

Photos and More from this Year's Summit

More than 250 attendees joined us at the Shape Your Cape Summit on April 5th at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth, generously presented by Cape Cod Healthcare. THANK YOU to all who contributed to making the day such a success! We were inspired by the conversation, the ideas, and the passion of everyone in attendance - panelists, attendees, sponsors, and volunteers - all aimed at helping shape work and life opportunity for the Cape's young workforce.

Scroll down to check out the photos - both professional shots and Instagram posts - that we felt best captured the spirit of the day. Special thanks to the amazingly talented Salty Broad Studios and Photosasha, who both gave their time and skills as our official event photographers for the Summit and Post-Summit After Hours (respectively). Thanks also to all the Instagrammers who tagged #shapeyourcape in their photos - we loved reliving the Summit through your eyes!
