Working Well in Challenging Times
The COVID-19 pandemic added more stress, fear, uncertainty, and labor to already taxed faculty, staff, and administrators.
Questions abound: How will I get any work done in this environment? How do I balance competing professional, personal, and community demands? How can I manage all that is in front of me when I'm feeling emotionally depleted?
This workshop takes up these questions by providing a framework for healthy coping and decision-making in these challenging times.
Using this framework, participants are guided in the development of a personalized plan they can immediately implement for better wellness, productivity, and balance.CONTACT US
*Workshop is exclusively for women of color.*
Isolation, service overload, and experiences of gendered-racism are just some of the impediments to advancement and optimal health women of color (WOC) face in academe.
To address these challenges, the WOC in this workshop:
- Learn and practice culturally sensitive techniques that enhance health, increase productivity, and improve work-life harmony.
- Explore healthy ways to deal with experiences of discrimination and tokenism.
- Foster connections with other women of color.
University and department-level mentor programs can be central to the successful retention and progression of students, trainees, and early career faculty of color.
Mentoring across racial difference, however, can be challenging for both mentors and mentees. This workshop addresses this challenge by providing 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 will 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.
