(Re)Balancing Many Identities
We move through many identities over the course of a life. We shift with age, life stage, relationship status. We are students, parents, caregivers/caretakers, as well as any other roles we inhabit through career, community, faith, even hobbies we’re committed to. In this workshop, marci Alboher, who popularized the idea of the “slash career” will spur you to think about your current “slashes” (e.g. mother/caregiver/entrepreneur) and guide you through exercises to help you prioritize and bring these aspects of life and work into harmony, rather than conflict with each other.

Are You Living in an Age Bubble?
Connecting across generations is an essential part of being human. We saw that in the extreme during Covid-19 when older and younger were forced to keep a distance. Yet many of us are increasingly living lives that are segregated by age. Maybe you’re an empty nester and suddenly the bustling house is eerily quiet. Or you’re not naturally coming into contact with older or younger people because of other aspects of your lifestyle/life stage (e.g. you don’t have kids of your own, you work at home). Of course we connect with older and younger people in our families, but if you’re not working in a multigenerational setting, how often do we do that outside of our own families? In this workshop, led by author and nonprofit leader Marci Alboher, we’ll ask whether we are living in our own age bubbles and explore ways to get out of those bubbles.
