The Commission for Women and the Office of the Provost are sponsoring a panel discussion entitled “Empowering Women to Deal with Unit-Level Conflicts,” on March 29 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Frieson Black Cultural Center. This “Ask the Experts” panel features several experts on conflict resolution (and, more generally, difficult conversations) who will help the audience explore productive and unproductive ways to resolve conflicts at the unit level on campus. Both conflict and conflict resolution can be gendered—from a binary standpoint, male and female managers and those they manage may respond differently to verbal and nonverbal cues in addressing conflict in the workplace. How do women navigate those waters as administrators, on the one hand, and faculty or staff, on the other hand? After a brief introduction, panelists will respond to questions posed in advance by members of the campus community as well as questions collected from the audience.
