At this session, you’ll hear several short lightning talks from four different University of Waterloo staff members presenting on relevant topics from their areas of expertise. After the lightning talks, you’ll have an opportunity to join a breakout room with one of our lightning talk facilitators to learn more about the topic and ask questions.
Procrastination is a common enough experience, but it can cause significant stress, difficulties in planning and deprive you of a feeling of accomplishment and calm as you work. If you find yourself identifying with some of these struggles, this workshop is for you.
We’ve all done it. Said the wrong pronoun, used the wrong name, and/or otherwise referred to someone in some sexed/gendered way and immediately wished we could take it back. (And, guess what? We are all going to do it – we’re all human; we all make mistakes.) So, how can we as professionals forestall these mistakes in our practices and activate in ourselves an inclusive ideology for gender and sexed identities in our work?
