How to advocate for yourself at work during COVID-19
We need community now more than ever
Circles are small groups of women who come together for real talk and peer support. Right now, Circles are meeting virtually and helping each other through the pandemic. We’re a global community and we’re continuing to lean on each other.
Resources to help you get through this
During COVID-19, we're all navigating a new normal at work. Here are some practical resources to help you set new boundaries and ask for additional support at work. For more resources, check out our other topics here.
If you’re covering this topic in your virtual Circle this month, read one or more of the pieces below, then discuss as a group using our suggested questions at the end.
Discussion questions for virtual Circles
