Registration is closed

As professionals who focus on the development of others and organizations, it is vital that we reflect on our own ability to show up in ways that promote innovation, relationship-building and equity. In this session, participants will explore how stress manifests in their daily lives, examine the root causes of distress and trauma, and investigate how their personal values impact their boundaries and priorities. In order to navigate tough conversations and realities about race, we must cultivate resilience in ourselves and organizations so that we can recognize racism in policies, cultural norms and individual behaviors and make changes that promote healing. After this critical reflection, participants will explore leadership, communication, and environmental strategies for re-centering health, sustainability and justice for ourselves and the communities we serve. 

This session will be led by Becca Bishopric Patterson.  Becca (she/her/hers) is the Assistant Director for the Gender and LGBTQIA Center at Elon University, where she has held many different roles since 2012. She has a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies: Public Health from North Carolina State University and a MBA from Elon University. For the last decade, her work has been dedicated to promoting wellness and justice within communities as a program manager, health educator, diversity and inclusion trainer, and gender violence prevention specialist. She has presented at state and national conferences on trauma stewardship, cultural humility, primary prevention, peer education and activism. She enters this work humbly, with an open heart, ready to grow and facilitate transformation. In her personal time, she is a partner, pet-mama, earth-lover and witch.
