Art of Reciprocity
Multi-media presentation by Susie O’Keeffe
Monday, March 10, 4pm • Appletree
A research associate at College of the Atlantic, Susie O’Keefe will present poetry, prose, images, and music that tells the story of her month-long contemplative inquiry in the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska. Titled “Art of Reciprocity: Rekindling the Exchange of Wild Affection,” this work has grown from O’Keeffe’s conviction that the ecological crisis is ultimately a problem of limited human awareness and sense of separation from “nature.” Her piece demonstrates how the practices of contemplation, creative perception, and self-awareness can be combined with the arts and used to transform our relationship with the natural world. O’Keeffe has worked with a variety of environmental organizations in the United States and Europe, and holds an M.S. with distinction in environmental management from Oxford University.
Creating a Sustainable and Flourishing Workplace
Workshop with Cary Gaunt
Tuesday, March 11, 12:00-1:30 pm • Marlboro College Graduate and Professional Studies Center
Businesses and organizations of all sizes and types are implementing innovative approaches to improve sustainability and resiliency in the workplace. In doing so, they are realizing that benefiting people and the planet also can also improve their financial bottom line. Developing creative strategies for managing this “triple bottom line” of people, planet, and profits is the focus of this workshop led by Cary Gaunt, a faculty member at Marlboro College’s MBA in Managing for Sustainability program. After discussing what it means to have a sustainable and flourishing workplace, we will explore some of the hopeful trends in organizational sustainability, focusing on practical examples that you can apply to your own situation. Part of the MIX (Management Ideas Exchange) series, this hands-on, brown-bag workshop is free and open to the public, but please register.
Workshop with Desha Peacock
Tuesday, March 25, 5:30-7:00 pm • Marlboro College Graduate and Professional Studies Center
A study from HubSpot finds that 56 percent of businesses that blogged at least monthly acquired customers through their blogs, and blogging three times a week increased that percentage to 70. It’s a fact that consumers expect to see fresh content on you site, but with all the competition and “noise” out there, how does one compete for attention in this information-saturated world? In this workshop with career development and lifestyle expert Desha Peacock, participants will gain a clear idea of why they are blogging, determine who their ideal audience is, learn how to stay “on brand,” and discover how to grow their blog presence. Part of Marlboro College’s HOT (Hands On Tech) series, this workshop is free and open to the public, but please register and bring your own laptop.
