    • Crucial Conversations facilitated by Dr. Debbie Longo Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm Locations: Heritage Room, Kaufman Library Details:

      Whenever you’re not getting the results you’re looking for, it’s likely a crucial conversation that’s keeping you stuck. Whether it’s a problem with poor quality, strained peer or manager relationships, declining client or student satisfaction,—whatever the issue—if you can’t talk honestly with nearly anybody about almost anything, you can expect poor results.

      Crucial Conversations teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics—at all levels of your organization. By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

    • Sexual Assault Awareness Month: Denim Day Time: All Day Locations: Campus-wide Details:

      Denim Day is an international protest in response to the Italian Supreme Court’s overruling of a rape conviction in 1999. An Italian woman was raped, and when the case went to trial, the jury found her assailant guilty. The Supreme Court then overturned the ruling, saying that jeans are so difficult to remove, that the assailant could not have done so without the victim’s consent.

      Join the GGC community in standing in support of victims of sexual assault by wearing denim on this day.
