TIC Canterbury: Normalising Emotions in the Workplace


Registration is only available for current members.

Event Details

The Infrastructure Collective Canterbury presents Normalising Emotions in the Workplace is a panel event focusing on lived experiences of how professionals in the infrastructure sector acknowledge and deal with emotions in the workplace. 

As humans, we cannot be expected to “leave life at the door” whilst bringing our authentic selves to work. So, let’s come together and hear from consultants, contractors and experts in the field on the importance of acknowledging emotions in the workplace.

Upon registering, please submit questions or topics you would like to hear about to guide the panellists on their discussions.

This event is kindly sponsored by Aurecon
