Collaborating for a Shared Purpose
Location: Africana Studies and Research Center, Cornell University
Date: November 2 & 3, 2018 – Attend one or both days!
While most of us are inspired by the idea of collaborating meaningfully with others and contributing together to a purpose larger than ourselves, we also tend to distrust that this is actually possible – whether it’s across lines of authority, cultural or class differences, or even with members of our own teams. This 2-day workshop is about helping us find the inner strength and the tools that can support us in bringing the spirit of collaboration to our work and life, one thought, one conversation, and one meeting at a time.
