Oh, and on Top of All of That…You Are Living Through a Pandemic!
This plenary session will focus on how complicated and pressure-filled taking care of others is when life is hard. Working in Higher Education is challenging on good days because the work involves people in so many life situations. This past year has added layers of grief, isolation, the need to pay attention to details (so many details!) and the stress of the world according to Zoom. The realities of these recent challenges, on top of existing challenges, will create the foundation for looking at ways to care for ourselves and others during these times. As laughter remains one of the best medicines for all kinds of difficulties, the hope is there will be a few chuckles along the way.
