    How to Navigate Workplace Conflict - March 2020 Business Meeting & Workshop

    In this session Janice Cunning will focus on helping you navigate conflict more effectively at work. Volunteer engagement requires the ability to interact with a wide range of individuals. Therefore it is important to understand how you, and others, react differently in conflict situations. We will explore different approaches and stages of conflict. Since practical application is the key to sustained learning, you will identify actions you can take to anticipate, prevent and manage conflict situations.

    Learning Outcome 1: Effective ways to anticipate, prevent and manage conflict situations

    Learning Outcome 2: How to work through conflict when people have different approaches

    Learning Outcome 3: Relationship-building techniques that you will be able to apply immediately

    Examining Unconscious Bias - April 2020 Business Meeting & Workshop

    Gaining an awareness of our unconscious biases enables us to recognize and take action to disrupt the negative impact of biases in both personal and professional settings. In this way, individuals can engage in more authentic relationships with others. When working with volunteer engagement professionals, it is important to develop strong partnerships with volunteers and to be able to understand the diverse backgrounds and lived experiences that they may come from. In this workshop, participants will gain the tools necessary to create an equitable and inclusive environment which is important as our society becomes increasingly diverse. A positive, inclusive working culture improves productivity attracts and retains the best talent and volunteers and leads to greater employee satisfaction.

    Learning Outcome 1:To develop a deeper understanding of unconscious bias and how it manifests

    Learning Outcome 2:To understand the impact of bias in personal and professional settings

    Learning Outcome 3:To gain tools to disrupt bias in personal and professional settings
