This program is being offered as part of the Philanthropic Assistants and Coordinators Network (PACNET)

Philanthropic Assistants and Coordinators Network (PACNET) is designed to address the professional development and networking needs of individuals serving in an administrative support function to senior leadership in their organization. The network meets quarterly and seeks to develop a community for the purpose of sharing questions, experience and resources among peers in a confidential setting.

Join your PACNET peers for our May workshop to reflect and connect with your peers and practice ways to navigate difficult conversations around power dynamics, implicit bias, and/or other areas. From managing challenging workplace relationships to responding to constructive criticism to negotiating assignment changes, this workshop will focus on connecting you with other PACNET peers to provide you with a chance to share insights and resources.  Peer moderated role-playing exercises will take place in the breakout rooms as a tool to improve communication skills when managing difficult scenarios.

What will you learn?

  • Tools and skills for managing group dynamics and/or conflicts in the workplace

  • Role-play exercises to help interrupt conversations in which conflict arises

Who should attend?

This program is being offered as part of the Philanthropic Assistants and Coordinators Network, but is relevant to all administrative support staff.
