Caring for Ourselves and Others As We Navigate Change

A New Dialogue Series for Staff

Are you learning or seeking new ways of caring for yourself and your loved ones during this time? Are you interested in being in community with others at Northwestern who are navigating this changing moment, to share strategies, thoughts, and caring space? The Women's Center, HR Wellbeing, Learning and Organization Development, and the Office of Equity are sponsoring a new dialogue series specifically designed to support and provide space for Northwestern staff during the remote work period. 
Join us every other Thursday, from 3:30-4:30, for a facilitated conversation with staff from across the University. Topics will rotate each session, and may include: complex concerns for caregivers; managing vicarious trauma; care-based approaches to remote work; and more.


Session Ten

Exploring Identity: Culture Boxes

This session will be the second in a four-part series exploring Identity (as individuals and as a community). Participants are invited to bring three objects to the share during our virtual session. Each object should be something that you feel represents an aspect of your identity. Selecting one which is tied to your racial identity is encouraged but the choice of objects is entirely yours. We will share these objects in small groups and build from session nine’s conversation on what it can mean to foster whole identities in the work place. New and return staffers from every unit are welcome.
