January 6–March 17

Meet with Counseling Services Eric Garcia, who specializes in working with LatinX and undocumented students, for Let’s Talk on Thursdays 2-4PM.

Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.

Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:


Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it.
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling.
Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists.
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.


How does Let’s (Tele)Talk work?

While typically offered in various campus locations, Let’s (Tele)Talk will be offered via Zoom. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s (Tele)Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.

February 7 3:00 p.m.–4:30 p.m.
Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Multicultural Center, room 109

“Leadership” is considered one of the core career readiness competencies for college students that lead to success in the workplace and lifelong career management. The truth of the matter is that leadership, as defined in the U.S., is not built for the success and retention of BIPOC individuals. BIPOC communities and cultures value collective thoughts and collaboration over individualism; connection, growth and community over professionalism; excellence over perfectionism; and storytelling and verbal communication over the written word. It’s time to change the narrative and bring BIPOC leadership into the spotlight!

In this interactive workshop facilitated by BIPOC Student Leaders from Holden Center for Leadership and Community Engagement, we invite you to reflect on leadership, culture, and identity as we examine the influence of culture in the workplace. We hope this will be a space for collective learning and you will walk away with a better understanding of how you can leverage your unique culture and identities to demonstrate BIPOC leadership skills for a better future.

 

Special thanks to the U.S. Department of State for sponsoring this workshop series.
