As a student employee, you’re not just being supervised by your boss—you can also play an active role in that relationship and advocate for yourself by supervising up! In this training, you’ll learn strategies for managing your relationship with your supervisor.

We’ll also learn from one DU supervisor and her former student employee about how they made their supervisory relationship thrive. Our guests for this conversation are:

Neda Kikhia — Neda joined the DU community once again as the Program Manager for the DU DialogUes program, adding staff to a list of student, campus leader, and alumni. Trained in Community Organizing, Neda looks for opportunities, events, and programming that focus on elevating the voices and stories of people that move folks to action. She is a Colorado local who is passionate about community engagement and its potential to initiate sustainable community change. She is an avid podcast listener, travel enthusiast, and spoken word fanatic.

Manda Wittebort — Manda is a civic leader who has engaged in service-learning, community development and positive youth development. Throughout her educational and professional journey, she has sought opportunities to develop her civic leadership skills so she can increase her capacity to effect positive community change. During her time as a DU student, Manda worked in a variety of student employment positions, including as a DU Dialogue Graduate Coordinator, GlobalRes Graduate Coordinator, and a CCESL Community Engaged Fellow.
