Who this group is for: Anyone who is looking to alter their relationship to the workplace, either by finding a new job, bringing new ideas to your current company, creating new space for minorities at work, or forging your own path in some way. All disciplines are welcome, though I personally have a background in technology and may tend toward using those examples.
What we’ll do in this group: Get a grasp of the space you’re in, explore what kind of space you thrive in, and learn techniques to either move into a better space or transform the place you already have. Learn exercises to assess yourself, your needs, and the needs of others. Learn how to network and build a community of allies both inside and outside your company.
The details for exercises and weekly topics will be tailored to the needs of the group.
Times Per Month: Twice Per Month
Dates: Every other Monday, 4/19 – 8/15
Meeting Times: 7:30-9:30pm (EST)
