Living the Resilience Tree Model: A Guide for Mid-Level Women of Color (and Those Who Support Them) to Navigate Institutional Transitions

PC 11

Do I stay in student affairs? What are my next professional opportunities? How do I propose necessary departmental organizational structure or budget changes? How do I negotiate my identity and interests outside of work/role? What support do I need from supervisors, senior leadership, or the institution? For the last six years, these questions and more were discussed regularly between three mid-level professionals providing peer mentorship to one another and now we are sharing lessons learned with the profession! Using the Resilience Tree Model (Sobers, 2014) as a framework, this workshop will allow women (and those who support them) to share experiences and develop a tangible guide for staying resilient within student affairs.
