Conflict and Collaboration in the Workplace

Keynote Speaker Betty Snyder

Monday, April 8th

11 am- 12 pm MT on Zoom

Working with others can be difficult, especially in a professional setting! Join us for an exploration of how to navigate conflict and collaboration in the workplace, led by our talented keynote speaker, Betty Snyder. Betty is the ombudsman for the DU chancellors office, meaning she provides a safe space for students to talk about concerns or issues. Betty will share her perspective on how to approach conflict and communication with dignity and purpose, and she will also touch on some of the neuroscience of conflict.

This event is designed for Student Employees and Supervisors, but all are welcome! Help us kick off National Student Employment week, and register to learn how to improve understanding, build relationships and bring people together to create powerful and productive outcomes in your workplace.
