Inclusive Leadership in a Virtual Reality on , April 6th at
Facilitator: Bobbie Porter, AVP for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The COVID-19 Pandemic has drastically changed our daily functions as campus leaders. This change has impacted the way we perform our duties, and it also necessitates a different approach to how we lead others in a time of operational upheaval. In this session, participants will discuss inclusive leadership approaches to adjusting to our new virtual environment. They will also engage in shared learning regarding our leadership diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy amid the current public health crisis. Participants will be guided through exercises that will help them begin to think through the new normal that will emerge in the immediate and long-term.
Mindfulness Mondays on March 30th, April 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th at 12pm-12:30pm -
Facilitator: Dr. Bang Lang Do
In a world of multi-tasking, prioritizing tasks without being pulled over by the myriads of distractions at work takes reflective time. Taking a break, clearing our mind and increasing awareness of our automatic emotional response will help direct and improve our attention, open the door to more novel ideas or solutions, and help us make well-informed rational decisions. Mindfulness Monday is 30 minutes of self-care through breathing exercises, light stretching and relaxing practices.
