We currently live in a world filled with uncertainty and unknowns. In fact, it’s quite possible that at the moment we don’t even know what we don’t know — what former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld would refer to as “unknown unknowns.” These unknowns are barriers for many individuals, especially some of our most underrepresented, vulnerable populations. How might we mitigate these barriers by creating the space for all individuals to effectively advocate for themselves in decisions that affect them?
For many doctoral students, there is so much in flux. Will you have summer funding? How might changes in the fall affect your funding, your housing, your TA positions, or your capacity to conduct research? While some student groups and organizations are mobilizing, how might you begin to think through the decisions that are being made, and your capacity to play a role in the decision-making process?
Join Andrew P. Minigan of the Right Question Institute for a free, one-hour webinar on the Voice in Decisions Technique — a powerful, simple strategy that you may use to think on how to best navigate the decision-making process and advocate for yourself and others.
