What Would YOU Do? Making Tough Choices During Difficult Times

What questions do you consider when trying to decide what to do? Consider the following: Would you visit a family member, or attend a protest, during a global pandemic? Would you speak up if you heard someone that you do not know make a racist comment? Would you tell a friend that you discovered that their partner is cheating on them if you are also friends with the person doing the cheating? How do you decide what’s best? During this interactive workshop you will engage in activities designed to uncover the pros and cons of the ethical approaches you are already using. You will also learn about other helpful approaches. Practical resources for making difficult choices will be provided.

Raise your voice! Best Practices around Community Organizing, Public Policy and Community Care

In these uncertain times we are seeing a growing number of individuals speaking out, raising their voice and protesting the injustices that people, the Black community in particular, face. We are seeing a cry for response around access, human rights and climate change as well as health concerns as our world and in particular, the United States continues in turmoil. The recent pandemic has served to highlight the injustices of our nation and folks are working together to advocate for change. Throughout history, there are social movements that have been wildly successful and others that were unable to be sustained.

In this interactive workshop, we will examine the history of social movements, best practices around community organizing and public policy and we will engage in conversation around moving past self-care to community care. We will share common pitfalls and challenges as well as successes and what works. Participants will break into groups in the second half of the presentation to engage in Action Planning around various social concerns. We hope participants will build connections with one another to learn more about current efforts and movements happening in our own community. We hope you will join our Social Action and Integrative Learning (SAIL) staff and register below.

SAIL will be hosting this workshop as part of Leadership Mason Experience. Check out the many incredible programs and events offered.

Immigration Monologues

Theme Description: This year's theme pushes against the romanticization of immigrant narratives. The struggle and resilience of immigrant communities are often viewed as stories of inspiration rather than injustice.

Leadership Connection Hour: Implic-ish

“With power, come great responsibility.” As a leader, you have a great deal of power, whether we realize it or not. The ways we respond to those following us, can make or break individuals on a team, so we have to make sure we are responding to everyone equitably. As leaders, no matter how many good intentions we have, we still have biases, and some of those biases are unconscious. In this hour, we will look at the unconscious biases, how they can affect our leadership ability, and how we can enhance who we are as leader when we recognize them to ensure we treat all as if they belong.

But what nurtures resilience? How does one's resilience manifest during this pandemic?
