Online: Navigating Difficult Conversations: Communicating Across Difference
March 23, 2020, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EDT
In light of COVID-19 and in alignment with university policy, Rackham is delivering our professional and academic programming when possible in alternative formats. This will be a pre-recorded webinar. Participants will be encouraged to contact the facilitator afterwards with questions or to schedule follow-up remote meetings if there is a specific need or concern they would like to share. Please be sure to check your email the morning of the online workshop for the link to view the program.
As a graduate student, you have likely already engaged in a number of difficult conversations throughout your life. Perhaps some of them went well, and others did not go as well as you had hoped. What distinguished these conversations from one another? In this interactive session, Rackham experts in conflict resolution will discuss how to navigate difficult conversations. You will leave with concrete strategies for productive dialogue and clear communication, able to approach difficult conversations with more confidence in the future.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
