Engage West! Staff Edition Agenda 10/3/19

Suicide Prevention
Presenter: Jeff Davis | Counseling Services
Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

Generational Diversity
Presenter: Deirdre Rouse and Ashley Lewis | Center for Diversity and Inclusion
Do you think your generation is the best thing since slice bread? Well so does every generation. Come learn how important connecting with other generations are to having a successful workplace culture. This session will explore the uniqueness and commonalities of building intergenerational teams.

The Color of Money
Presenter: Cole Stratton and Kristen Smith | Budget Services
Interested in learning the budget process at UWG? Come learn about how funding is allocated to UWG and how to utilize your budget throughout the year.
