The USM Women's Forum offered a double header of webinars in the spring of 2018 for faculty, staff, and students. Kicking off in early March, Christine Barnabic, Education Program Management Specialist in the Center for Integrative Medicine at The University of Maryland, Baltimore, shared her knowledge about work, stress, and how best to manage those factors when they combine. This lunchtime webinar taught attendees how to recognize stressors that are affecting the mind and body, implement mind body strategies for stress reduction, and understand positive psychology techniques shown to increase optimism.
Our second webinar was inspired by the explosive response to the hashtag #metoo and the recognition of how pervasive societal norms have hindered people, particularly women, in sharing and reporting their experiences of sexual harassment and gender-based violence. In this webinar, Jess Myers of UMBC and Rina Rhyne of Goucher College helped participants to identify outlets, which they can use to support themselves and their colleagues experiencing sexual harassment and violence. Jess and Rina also discussed tools and options related to reporting, in addition to self-care practices.
