Interaction 22 Keynote:
That Which Is Not Said: Healing from Unspoken Workplace Hardships
Our work requires us to be up and close with the messiness and complexity of what it means to be human and yet, there are not enough conversations about the impact that has on us as professionals, the struggles of advancing this work within capitalistic systems, and the unique workplace difficulties we encounter within them. Let’s learn how to overcome them together.
