 August 17  10:00 AM PST  Resilience in the Face of Toxic Leadership--Taking Care of Your People and Yourself

 Evidence shows that toxic leadership has significant negative impact on organizations, but did you know that it has an even more sinister impact on individuals who are exposed to toxic leadership? It can change their behaviors on the job and in their personal lives. But what can we do about it when we find ourselves in a toxic leadership position? By exploring the characteristics of those who are most resilient in the face of toxic leadership we can find ways to protect ourselves, and more importantly, to take care of the people who trust in our leadership. Join Dr. Jan Hamby, Rear Admiral (Ret), USN, in a discussion about what you can do to be resilient in the face of toxic leadership.

 September 29  3:00 PM PST Women, Peace and Security This talk will address the foundations of the Women, Peace & Security (WPS) framework as grounded in United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000). That framework calls for the increased inclusion of women in addressing security issues and for gendered perspectives in policy making, based on the pillars of participation, protection, prevention, and relief and recovery. Factors inhibiting the accomplishment of WPS goals include structural and cultural prejudices including manifestations through violence. Based on the US Women, Peace & Security Act (2017) and subsequent national and organizational strategies and implementation plans, including the DOD WPS Strategy & Implementation Plan released in June 2020, the role of the US military - nationally and globally - in implementation is critical.
