About this event

**This event will be recorded**

How we show up at work has much to do with how we employ our identities, strengths, and gifts at the workplace. As described by the Feminist Freedom Warriors Project out of Syracuse University, “All of us live complex lives that require a great deal of juggling for survival. What that means is that we are actually living at the intersections of overlapping systems of privilege and oppression.”

Join Executive Director, Meredith Curry, as she'll reveal the Acknowledge-Accept-Adapt model and engage in mindful breathing, an important coping mechanism to handle the stresses of career, school, and navigating your life journey. In this session you’ll learn how to:

  • Acknowledge your intersectionalities
  • Accept your challenges and strengths
  • Adapt to opportunities which often includes letting go of what no longer serves you. By knowing who you are now, you position yourself to seek opportunities that align with your skills and strengths today.

Come to the workshop with an open mind and heart! Though work spaces often discourage and disregard exploration of our identities as a matter of policy and/or culture, that doesn’t mean YOU can’t take the necessary steps to bring your authentic self to work. With that in mind, exploring our intersectionalities can lead to both immediate, short-term changes for your own life, as well as sustained, long-term shifts for you, your team, and your org culture.
