THRIVING IN STRESSFUL TIMES

Balancing teaching, scholarship, service, and personal obligations in these challenging times have added more stress, fear, uncertainty, and labor to already taxed faculty.

This workshop offers evidence-based ways to manage stress while finding more fulfillment in work and life. 

Specifically, participants: 
  • Learn the hidden causes and consequences of stress
  • Examine simple yet effective coping and decision-making practices shown to reduce stress and increase happiness
  • Develop a personalized plan they can immediately implement for greater wellness, success, and work-life harmony

SUSTAINING OURSELVES (SOS)*

*Designed for faculty of color

Isolation, service overload, and micro-aggressions are just some of the impediments to advancement and optimal health faculty of color face in academia.

To address these challenges, participants in this workshop:
  • Practice culturally sensitive techniques that enhance well-being, achievement, and work-life harmony
  • Explore healthy ways to deal with experiences of discrimination, exclusion, and tokenism
  • Foster peer-mentoring connections that help sustain growth and belonging

ANTI-RACIST MENTORING

Mentor programs are central to the successful retention and progression of students, trainees, and faculty of color. Mentoring across racial difference, however, can be challenging for both mentors and mentees. 

This workshop provides an anti-racist mentorship model participants can use to begin the process of creating equitable mentorship relationships with mentees of color.

Using the model, participants explore how to:

  • Recognize and address implicit bias and internalized racism
  • Address the common mistakes well-meaning mentors make when mentoring across racial privilege
  • Enact anti-racist values in the matching and setting of goals and the receiving and giving of feedback
  • Heal mentor-mentee ruptures

On-Campus Offering

 Only available in full-day (6-hour) format

BE WELL RETREAT*

*Designed for women of color faculty

Central to the retention and progression of women of color faculty is whole-person support that attends to their unique positionality.

Using a holistic, culturally responsive model of development, retreat participants: 
  • Explore pathways to healthy advancement, goal achievement, and personal fulfillment (e.g., holistic planning, valued action, and renewal)
  • Engage in practices that reduce stress, increase focus, and promote healing (e.g., self-compassion, mindfulness, and gratitude)
  • Share in authentic sisterhood where each person's whole self is recognized and welcomed
