On the 93rd anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday, Dr. Marci Webster, PhD, conducted a virtual workshop on “Resilience” for the high school students in the Women In Training Leadership Development Circle. The interactive presentation was based on the workshops Dr. Webster presents for senior level federal government leaders for the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
Some of the topics Dr. Webster covered are as follows:
Where we have been as a community since the COVID-19 pandemic first caused schools to close in March 2020
Brenna Yovanoff’s theory, “When you name something, you take away some of its power. It becomes known.”
Discussion about positive and negative emotions experienced during the pandemic, such of loss, trauma, burnout and hope, growth and new ways of learning
Where are we now as a community and as individuals. Where are we going?
Creating resilience by looking back to look forward
Signals of change
Employment trends, such as working from home
In February, the WIT Leadership Development Circle will participate in a period poverty workshop at Auburn University.
