UAAD to host power negotiation workshop Oct. 16

UAAD is hosting a workshop Oct. 16

The University Association for Administrative Development is hosting a presentation by Rachel Pokora, a Nebraska Wesleyan University professor, about power negotiation in bureaucracies. The workshop will be from 9 a.m. to 11, Oct. 16, at the Carpenter Telecommunications Center, 1800 N 33rd St.

Cost is $20 for UAAD members and $35 for non-members. Register online by Oct. 13.

The workshop will explore the levels of power that exist in bureaucracies. Participants will learn to identify different types of power and consider multiple ways of negotiating that power in their relationships, in their departments and on the university level. Participants will be given handouts and interact with the speaker about issues they face.

Pokora is professor of communication at Nebraska Wesleyan University. She earned her bachelor’s degree in communication in 1990 from Michigan State University and both her master’s and doctorate degrees from Purdue University in 1993 and 1996, respectively. Her first sabbatical in 2003-2004 took her to Florence, Italy. Pokora spent the 2012-2012 academic year in Galway, Ireland, where she was a visiting research associate with the Global Women’s Studies program at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Pokora teaches courses on theory, leadership, gender and communication in contemporary society.
