Workshop 1 - Navigating Uncertainty: 10:30am - 12pm
Have you ever felt uncertain? Ever felt like you didn't know what to do next? Let's talk about it! Feelings of uncertainty are pretty common, so we want to create a space where we can talk about this icky feeling in an authentic way. We will review the concept of social scripts (Tomkins, 1979) as a lens to understand what underpins feelings of uncertainty, and some approaches and strategies you can use to overcome those feelings.
Lunch*: 12:00pm - 1pm
Equity & Leadership for Grad Students (workshop 2): 1pm - 3:00pm
We talk a lot about equity, diversity and inclusion on campus but what do we really mean and how do these concepts relate to our academic, work and personal lives on campus? How do these terms relate to our understanding of leadership and how can we be more inclusive in our leadership styles? This workshop explores these questions alongside concepts of power, privilege and social location. We will examine concepts of structural inequality, while also creating a space for us to think about what commitments we can make around continuing to learn more while putting what we have learned into action and how we can take care of ourselves while we do this work.
Break: 3:00pm - 3:15pm
Workshop 3 - Collaborative Visioning - Goal Setting for Grad Students: 3:15pm - 4:30pm
Shared visions provide the foundation for collaboration, growth, and change. Experience the process of ″visioning″ as an important step toward achieving your and your team's goals and aspirations. We will be sharing techniques for long and short-term goal-setting so you can come away with practical strategies for developing a shared vision for your life, your leadership, and your team-- Let's get productive!
Reflection & Wrap Up: 4:30 - 5pm
