Room: 201/202, DECC
Abstract: The field of academic advising is beginning to show its commitment to social justice as a key part of working with students. Still, doing this work brings daily challenges. In addition to knowledge of foundational concepts like privilege, oppression, identity and power, academic advisors need additional strategies to do this daily social justice work. This workshop focuses on emotional components of social justice work to empower advisors to meet these challenges using mindfulness, emotional awareness and self compassion. When we place our attention in the present moment with compassion and without judgement, we expand our ability to intentionally choose how to engage. From this point, we can more easily begin to deconstruct oppressive systems. Participants will engage in interactive exercises, and self reflection that enable them to be more effective social justice advocates.
