Office of affirmative action to present 'Respectful Work Relationships 3' Sept. 11, 12

Submitted by Gina Lowe

Michelle White-Godinet, assistant director of affirmative action, will present Respectful Work Relationships 3 for non-supervisors, WTD147, from 9-11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, and for supervisors, WTD148, from 1:30–3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12,  both in Room 226 of the K-State Student Union.

This is the third in a series of respect trainings and requires prior attendance in Respectful Work Relationships 1 and 2. 

Respectful working relationships and respectful workplaces are integral components to increased productivity, teamwork and morale. This respect three training will emphasize having difficult conversations in difficult times. Discussion will be about workplace communication skills.   

The instructional methods utilized in the session include lecture, discussion and role playing. Please come prepared to share a situation — without using real names — where workplace communication has failed.

This is an event through the partnership of the office of affirmative action and the Division of Human Resources. There is no charge to participants, but registration is necessary to ensure adequate seating and materials. 

It is the employee's responsibility to obtain their necessary departmental approvals prior to enrolling. You may register in one of two ways:
