Description

How do disability resource professionals balance growing demands on their time, energy, and resources, which can negatively impact their own personal wellness, self-care, and ultimately, their satisfaction in their profession? Effective leaders help staff feel supported and valued—even in the most challenging times. Join AHEAD for a session specifically dedicated to the wellness of disability office staff and a discussion of ways in which leaders can enact practices to help their staff—and themselves—establish and maintain personal and professional boundaries, work/life balance, and professional fulfillment. These practices ultimately benefit not only staff, but students, departments, and institutions, in both the short and long-term.
