Jen Artz Brunch Speaker: Change

Jen Artz from Residence Life gave a great talk on change and how it affects our lives. She discussed personal examples as well as talked about ways we can work on getting better at accepting change when it happens. She discussed the ADKAR Model based on Prosci’s ideas. 

Below is a copy of the worksheet she gave us (jpg form). If you are going through a change in your life, feel free to check out his model to see what you need to work on when it comes to accepting that change!

The Danger of a Single Story

On February 26th, RA Natalie and I showed a Ted talk by Chimamanda Ngozi. It was about what happens when human beings and situations are reduced to a single story: when Africans, for example, are treated only as pitiable poor victims.Her point was that each individual life contains a collection and many versions of stories.

“If you reduce people to one, you’re taking away their humanity.”- CN
