JOY IS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21 | 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM (CST)
In this informational and interactive virtual event, Dr. Aeriel A. Ashlee invites high school counselors and college admissions professionals to consider how (re)centering and (re)claiming the joy in our work can serve as the catalyst and fuel we need to resist and persist in these challenging times. Expanding upon the fall 2023 MnACC conference, Finding the Joy in Our Why, and planting seeds for next year’s 2024 MnACC conference, this session will energize and empower as we head into the busy spring season.
