Event description
This program for Administrative Assistants offers connection, learning, support and dialogue amongst peers!

About this event

The position of Administrative Assistant to the Head of School or Division Head is a unique, complicated, and demanding one, requiring a high degree of professionalism as well as a complex combination of exceptional interpersonal skills, technology know-how, and the ability to manage and track several projects and events simultaneously.

Because this administrative support position requires maintaining a high level of confidentiality, those in it can feel particularly isolated from others in the school. This program offers a small, confidential and welcoming environment designed to foster connections, learning, support and dialogue with peers who share similar experiences and challenges. 

We will pay close attention to the continuing new demands on our positions as we navigate the shifts in duties as we continue to transition in response to COVID health and safety. There will be time for connecting with new colleagues across the state, as well as opportunities for participants to share regionally. 

Along with guest speakers and readings, we will incorporate time to problem solve, share know-how and resources, request practical feedback or suggestions, or just simply laugh about our jobs. This year's series will consist of three 2-hour workshops, with two additional 1.5-hour sessions throughout the year. Each 2-hour session will focus on a different theme and include a guest speaker. The shorter meetings are a time to connect and problem solve as challenges arise, as well as to check-in about integrating learning from the previous session.

Meetings will be tailored to the needs and interests of our current participants. Our first meeting will allow time to reacquaint or get to know one another. Topics may include boundary setting, self-advocacy, delegation, leadership, tech resources and self-care.

Session 2: December 10 from 11am-1:30pm

Session 3: January 19 from 10am-12pm

Session 4: March 24 from 11am-1:30pm
