Pam Foster, associate director of affirmative action, will present "Respectful Work Relationships I," WTD125, from 1:30–3:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1,  in Room 226 at the K-State Student Union.

The purpose of the session is to create an awareness of the needs of others in order to accept and acknowledge how their needs differ from our own needs.
