Workplace Empowerment and Engagement during the Pandemic

Susanne Markgren and Linda Miles

About the Program:

How engaged are you right now? Have you felt a shift in responsibilities, in expectations, in workplace dynamics? How do you communicate with colleagues, supervisors, and patrons? How does workplace culture impact your current level of satisfaction and professional practice? In this workshop, we will take a reflective look at this past year, assess our current state of mind, and envision how our professional practice will look in a post-pandemic future. We will incorporate and share brief exercises and writing prompts to assist with decoding organizational culture, defining workplace empowerment, and practicing self-compassion.
