UNC Kenan-Flagler's DEI Office invites all staff and faculty to join us for a series of workshops with mental health activist, author, and educator Myisha T Hill.

This series will offer an opportunity for self-reflection and skill building necessary to be better communicate, collaborate, lead, and design systems that truly support innovation and collective progress.
Myisha and her team will be offering skills that will align with our new core values and help support us personally and as a community here at the Business School.

The series will be 3 sessions, each session addressing 2 of the skills from their Community Care framework.
Sessions will be 90 minutes, delivered virtually, and will run from March to April 2023 from 10 am-11:30 am est.  Please register for each session you’d like to attend.
