About the Series

Higher Education institutions are facing the impacts of trauma caused by numerous crises of our time, including the COVID-19 pandemic, rising climate threat, mental health challenges, racism, & misogyny. Over the next 3 monthly sessions, we are bringing together those passionate about the transformation of Higher Education to explore how historical and modern-day trauma manifests itself in such institutions, and how you as leaders can address it. You will be joining an interactive, dynamic, solutions-focused set of conversations, as well as hearing expert voices open out this topic through case studies, resources, and proactive solutions.

Each session will have approximately 45 minutes of moderated discussion, followed by 45 minutes of highly interactive audience engagement. We will be actively seeking to get the global pulse on these issues from attendees around the world, and also requesting input on possible solutions or possible models to learn from. Student voices are highly welcome!
