Zoom Meeting – RSVP required
Perspectives seeks to provide space for participants to share experiences and build muscles for listening, understanding, empathy and dialogue across viewpoints. For this perspectives session, we will be underpinning our discussion with a webinar from the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD). The NCFDD is a resource available to all WUSTL community members and provides a broad depth and wide breadth of tools and resources to develop and grow as an academic. The webinar we will be discussing is entitled, “Academic Life: What’s Mindfulness and Compassion Got to Do With It?” by Dr. Angela Black. The talk focuses on how mindfulness and compassion offer tools for academics to pause and reassess, or how to center our minds and bodies as we navigate our lives.
