Workshop series promotes better way of communicating

By Michael Foster-Sanders/campus editor

NE Campus will host a series of workshops April 2 that will look at communication through the lenses of community, personal relationships, workplace relationships and interfaith understanding.

Speech instructor A’lsha Malone said she hopes Communicating in a World of Chaos can improve awareness, understanding and relationships not only on campus but also in everyday lives.

“There have been many incidents in the world around us that triggered this event,” she said. “The interfaith session was created out of a need for improved awareness of the value behind religions that are different from our own.”

During each of the workshop sessions, communication skills will be taught to help people navigate through difficult situations and help them improve their emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills.

“Each workshop session shows us how we can take small strides and make big steps in the world around us,” Malone said.

The workshops are Workplace Connections in NBSS 1103, Relationships, Reality and Red Flags in NBSS 2229, Casualties of Chaos in The Galley (NSTU 1506) and Interfaith in NSTU 1615A.

Guest speakers that will headline the event are Wells Fargo recruiter Kit Cam, government assistant professor Joan Johnson, Texas state senate candidate Allison Campolo, adjunct speech instructor Effie Quattorociocchi and student development associate Janjura Williams.

Each of the four workshops will be 9:30-10:50 a.m.

A second session will run 11 a.m.-12:20 p.m., and the event will conclude with a keynote session led by panelists from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish faiths 12:30-1:40 p.m.
