Upcoming Events

Learn the Art of Saying No

| 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM

Faculty Members,

  • Are you confused about when to say "yes" and "no" to other people's requests?
  • Do you often say "yes" to requests without realizing the impact that response will have on your time and productivity?
  • Do you find yourself feeling angry and resentful during the academic year because you've said "yes" too often?

You're not alone! Many faculty (at all career stages) find it incredibly difficult to sort out when, why and how to say "NO."

Join CFDA Director Karen Sobel online for a view-along. Then tune in for a discussion of The Art of Saying No. We’ll encourage each other and celebrate our successes, too! We'll be on Zoom at: https://ucdenver.zoom.us/j/94187626647

If you can’t join us for the program and celebration, you can log into NCFDD and watch on your own at: https://www.facultydiversity.org/webinars/artofno22
