Lunch, Awards Celebration and Table Talks

People will get lunch and enjoy during our annual awards presentations of outstanding educators

Table Talks follow focus on Micro-messaging: As you begin to speak at a meeting, the group leader looks down at his cell phone. Afterward, you return to your office and read an email from a colleague that says, “That was a great point you made today!” You walk to a meeting and a passing faculty member looks at you, but not at anything above the neck. You pass another person a few feet later who makes eye contact, smiles, and greets you warmly. These are examples of micro-messaging, of both micro-aggressions and micro-affirmations. This lunchtime session will provide an opportunity for table discussions about the effect of micro-messaging on people and on the environment. Attendees should review their work emails for the two weeks prior to the meeting, looking for micro-aggressions and micro-affirmations, and noting the effect of each on their attitude, stress level, and sense of well-being. Attendees will also be asked to reflect on their interactions the day before the conference and provide examples of micro-messaging and their effect.
