How do I recover when I make a mistake
November 15, 2019, 9:00 am - 10:30 am, Human Resources Building (1980 Arthur Street)*
Nobody does diversity and inclusion perfectly and, in fact, making mistakes is one of the ways we all learn. Still, we fear making a hurtful error and offending someone. Sarah Nunez of the Cultural Center will guide an exploration of how we recover and more importantly, how we restore relationships and community. Register to attend
November 20, 2019, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm, Human Resources Building (1980 Arthur Street)*
Some employees may experience difficulty speaking up for themselves. Knowing the difference between being assertive and aggressive can impact the way a message is perceived. This workshop provides participants with the tools to assert their positions and needs more effectively. Additionally, they will learn how to utilize appropriate communication skills to maintain boundaries, access necessary resources and negotiate with confidence. Register to attend
Safe Zone Training
December 5, 2019, noon - 2:00 pm, Thorntons Academic Center of Excellence (Cardinal Stadium)Karp Auditorium (Take the elevator to the 4th floor)
As part of a university community that has been recognized nationally for its spirit of inclusion, it's more important than ever to understand what it means to be LGBTQ+. For some, just gaining a basic understanding is the starting point. For others, learning to be an active advocate to LGBTQ+ members of our campus is a step they are ready to take. Regardless of where you are, this session will provide information, break down stereotypes, and open up dialogue. You don’t have to be an expert in sexuality or gender identity/expression to attend, just someone who is interested in helping all members of the campus community succeed. Lunch will be provided. Parking is available near the Norton Terrace at the south end of Cardinal Stadium. Space is limited. Register Now
*During the hours of our workshops, parking is limited. Available parking is permitted for Belknap employees with blue passes and up. If you are a HSC employee, parking is permitted for green and up.
