Join us as Drs. Sherry Watt and Beth Livingston facilitate Difficult Dialogues: Ways to stay in when you want to get out!

  • Dr. Sherry Watt will open the day with an interactive conversation, focusing on promoting introspection in regards to these difficult dialogues.
  • Dr. Beth Livingston will follow up with a discussion about the ways in which this manifests structurally in terms of employment feedback, high quality relationships and even “queen bee syndrome”, culminating in small group role-playing and scenario feedback giving.

Attendees will begin with introspection, engage in conversation, and then follow up with skill-building designed to improve your skills with difficult dialogues and ability to facilitate positive interpersonal interactions.  This will be followed by repeated afternoon breakout sessions on the following topics:

  • Implicit Bias with Dr. Denise Martinez
  • Finding and Owning Your Voice with Dr. Nancy Hauserman
  • Silencing Your Inner Critic with Maggie Moore     
  • Panel Discussion on Promotion with Faculty Affairs Associate Deans

We will finish the day with wine, cheese and insights from women leaders across campus.
