Please E-Mail Alexandra – for details

In this new reality, some of us are being asked to go back to the physical workspace, some of us are being asked to work remotely, and most of us are asked to learn new skills and step into new experiences.  In order to meet these new expectations, we may feel vulnerable about exposing parts of us that traditionally we may have kept private, such as our concerns of safety, our fears of competency, pre-existing medical conditions, and home life challenges.

Join us as we share insights into how we can lean in and reframe the conversation in the workplace to feel safe and invite a spirit of inclusion as we continue to navigate the dynamically shifting new abnormal of the workplace.
