Come hear nationally known speaker Kaetrena Davis Kendrick on her work on low morale in the workplace. Attendees will gain insight from Kendrick about the low-morale experience phenomenon and have an opportunity to ask questions!

The Renewal Colloquium encourages attendees to informally discuss, explore, and resolve questions about Kendrick's low morale studies (Kendrick ,2017; Kendrick & Damasco 2019; Kendrick 2021a; Kendrick 2021b) and/or their specific experiences of low morale. Brief prep work is encouraged for this moderated event. Join us, November 1, from 10:00 - 11:15 a.m. CDT for this special event!

Topics in the colloquium will cover:

  *   The role of practice-based and workplace barriers to resolving low morale
  *   The influence of behaviors, organizational systems, and values and norms on low-morale experiences
  *   Emerging and established pathways to workplace empowerment and improving individual choices and organizational culture
