Due to our commitment to ensuring the safety of our students and the broader U-M community, the LSA Opportunity Hub has decided to cancel this event.

RSVP to the event to receive materials. Please contact Zanib Sareini, <> with any related questions.

Have you ever had to wrestle with changing your name to assimilate at work? Or debated how to wear your hair to an interview? Maybe you’ve considered adjusting the way you speak, or which parts of your experience to share? Identities can be complex and ever-evolving, affecting the way that we are seen and heard in the workplace. Even though recent research from the Harvard Business Review has shown that companies still think of identity in defined ways, we know that notions of identity have shifted.

Join us for this one day retreat to reflect and articulate the answers to questions like these. We will explore what it means to be authentically ourselves in the workplace, and what happens if we face conflict or pushback in these situations.

You should attend this workshop if you are:
- Interested in exploring how social identity impacts individual experiences in the workplace
- Grappling with conflicting social versus professional identities at work
- Worried about jeopardizing your image and need clarity on what to do

What you’ll gain by attending:
- Gain a deeper understanding of the intersection of your social and professional identities
- Get tips and resources to support you in situations where you are being pressured to compromise
- Learn skills for managing professional workspaces where your identities differ from those around you
- Learn strategies on successfully navigating the workplace when these conflicts arise

Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided.
