Tea in the CID and “You Do You” Professional Dress Program — Join us for a conversation about how to maintain your authentic self in a professional environment.

Let’s talk about it. Alumni from various professional settings will share their experiences in an informal roundtable setting. Sponsored by the Center for Inclusion and Diversity, Women’s Caucus and the Career Development Center (CDO)

Tea in the CID and Managing Secondary Trauma: Starting the Conversation — As we serve others it is inevitable that we are also exposed to their traumas; empathy for their situation can make us more effective in serving their needs, but we also need to equip ourselves to manage that secondary trauma to be effective and not succumb to “compassion fatigue.” Join us for this roundtable discussion as we begin a conversation about this important topic with colleagues from the education program and legal clinics.  Sponsored by the Center for Inclusion and Diversity, the Diversity Affairs Committee and Legal Clinics
