Managing the Maze of Work
Student Workshop by Jane Horan, Founder and CEO of The Horan Group
Like it or not, the workplace is a maze. Becoming “maze bright” requires learning how to navigate organisational culture, including workplace politics. Join us for a lively session on this important and challenging topic, led by Dr. Jane Horan, an expert in inclusion and diversity, cross-cultural leadership, unconscious bias, and career transitions. Designed specifically for students transitioning from university to full-time work, Dr. Horan will share her research findings and practical strategies for navigating various challenges at work, without compromising personal values and goals.
