Director-Level Professionals

Stories from Those who have Lived our Processes
February 9th at 12:00pm

The work we do can be complicated. And, while we think we know how our processes impact those who go through them, do we ever really get a chance to stop and ask? Why does it seem to work for some, but we lose touch with others? This panel will be made up of individuals who have lived through the conduct process and are willing to share their stories of how it went, what they thought and why it matters. We hope to see you there!

This panel-guided roundtable discussion will be for Director-level administrators to discuss the trials and tribulations of the work we do in the current political and legislative environment.

This space will allow us a chance to discuss the navigation, legalities, and policies that rule our policies. Emphasis will also be placed on keeping staff motivated and creating change in Higher Education through our work. We hope to see you there!

Leading in a Multi-Generational Workplace
February 11th at 6:00pm EST

By the Director Level, we have learned the importance of communication in how we lead, but how do we effectively communicate when everyone we talk to hears something different…because of their generation? Cordell Jordan takes a hands-on and unconventional look at how having five generations of educators currently in our schools at one time (now that Gen Z, born 1997-present is here) introduces a mixed bag of phraseology, taxonomy and terminology that can cause distraction, perturbation and discombobulation. Add to the mix generational social norms in a time of politics, pandemic and human rights awareness, and miscommunication can quickly lead to indignation, resulting in classroom stagnation. Cordell will go back to the formative years of the Silent, Baby Boomer, Gen X, Millennial and Gen Z generations and discuss why they make it hard to say what we mean and mean what we say. A particular focus will be placed on sensitivity to racial bias and diversity understanding for both our students and our co-workers. We hope to see you there!
