DWN: The Give and Take of Feedback Sessions

We’re here to bust the myth, feedback is a one-way road! Delivering feedback is an art that deserves practice, and it’s everyone’s job.

About this Event:

Feedback is often thought of as a one-way road – it only goes one direction. You may even feel nervous or scared when feedback comes your way. Others may feel that feedback isn’t their place to give – they’re not the project manager or their supervisor.

We’re here to bust that myth! Delivering feedback is an art that deserves practice, and it’s everyone’s job. Receiving feedback requires tact and to be in tune with yourself. In this workshop, we’d like to help you see that feedback is a two-way street between you and another party. Join us and work on your ability to give and receive feedback. Sign up for any of the three sessions below.

DWN: Building Relationship Capital

About this Event

In the COVID world that we are in, most professionals have indicated that they miss the in-person interactions with their colleagues. There is an awakening that relationships matter, perhaps even more than originally thought – not just for our business and professional success, but for our own human well-being.

The trite saying is “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”. Research shows that most professional women prefer for their work to speak for itself. Merit should matter more than it does. The reality is that relationships are just as instrumental, if not more so, for career advancement and career success. The good news is that women excel at building genuine relationships.

Building relationship capital is being intentional about deepening existing relationships and adding new relationships that advance our careers. Relationships require investment and they pay dividends, just like capital. Relationships are much like plants – without care and feeding, they wither. Work relationships have different attributes – our allies differ from our acquaintances, and from our power brokers. In this workshop, we

DWN Leader Series: Supriya Surender – Life with Alopecia

About this Event

Supriya Surender joined DISH in 2011 and currently works as a Senior Analyst for CXO’s Voice of the Customer team.

Her life took an unexpected turn in 2015, when she lost all of her hair to the auto-immune disease, Alopecia. As someone who has spent the majority of her adult life dealing with anxiety and depression, Alopecia was a devastating blow to her self-worth and overall mental health. After having a near death experience with a pulmonary embolism in 2017, Supriya went from fighting mental health demons to finding a new lease on life.

Now she has turned her Alopecia into a passion and purpose by starting a blog called Baldie Boo. Supriya uses her life struggles to connect with others who are dealing with hair loss and strives. Her hope is to inspire those in the hair loss community who have lost hope, and show them that they can, and will, find their light at the end of the tunnel. No matter how dark.
