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 Eight: What's Going On? 

What’s Going on? Remember Marvin Gaye’s 1970 hit song? We’re amazed and disappointed that the words and the sentiment are as relevant today as they were in the 200 years before it and the 50 years since. Join us for this interactive discussion facilitated by Ellen Burton. This is a safe and open place for staff to have real conversations regarding racial injustices and violence we all witness. This is a session for employees to say what they need to say, be where they are and listen with curiosity.
