Western Update March 2021

On January 27, 2021, WLAM Western Region held a very well-attended event on Interrupting Implicit Bias based on the research of Joan Williams.  Our panelists Raquel Guzman, Tracey Brame, Kris Vanden Berg, and Judge Maureen Gottlieb discussed how to respond when faced with bias.  We watched a series of videos by Joan Williams discussing the hurdles that women face in the workplace and had a lively discussion following each video.  Those videos can be watched here: https://leanin.org/education/introduction-to-what-works-for-women-at-work

Next month we will hold a workshop about the Enneagram with certified Enneagram coaches Meredith TerHaar and Joe Graham. The Enneagram is a personality typology model that is widely promoted in business management because of its unique ability to foster self-understanding and self-development. The workshop will discuss the personality typing system and how identifying your Enneagram “number” can benefit our workplaces, communication, team dynamics, and professional and personal relationships. It will be March 30 at noon, on Zoom.
