The Human Resource Services (HRS) Employee Assistance Program and Center for Training and Professional Development continues their skills’ training series during March with workshop opportunities for university employees.

Identifying some of the emotional factors which employees experience when facing change and ways to process and handle change will be discussed by HRS Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Training Programs Director Brian Smith in “Coping with Change in the Workplace” at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 2.

Molly Holmes, director of the NIU Gender & Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC), will lead an informational session on transgender identities and share strategies for a respectful and positive work environment, inclusive language and mistake recovery in “Transgender Inclusion in the Workplace: What to Know” at 10 a.m. Friday, March 10.
