More than Meets the Eye: A New Direction for Conversations on Disability

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: June 18, 2020 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Level: Introductory
Track: Social Responsibility
Presenter: Jessie Wusthoff, Clover Health

While many companies understand the need to implement legal components related to disability in the workplace, few are confident in approaching the human side of these conversations on disability.

During this webinar, we will introduce different social models around disability and understand how they show up in daily work life. We’ll focus on creating a safe space to understand how these models impact our personal points of view and begin to explore better ways of framing conversations around disability in the workplace.

Let’s Talk Job Search

submitted by grayk2@augsburg.edu

How are you doing this summer? We know many of you had jobs and internships lined up for this summer and because of COVID-19 lost those opportunities. The Strommen Center team has heard from many students about the hardship this has created and we want you to know that we are here to help.

These weekly Let’s Talk Job Search conversations are informal and focused on hearing from you and your peers about how your summer job and internship search is going and learn more about how we can best assist you this summer. We can troubleshoot issues you are having and show you search tools and platforms you may not be aware of.

We hope you’ll join us for this first informal conversation on Tuesday, May 26 at 1:30 p.m.!
