Event Description

Has the approaching Holiday season got you juggling too many things and running out of time? Then come join Socializing for Justice ( for a Time Management Skillshare on December 6th, 6:00 - 8:30 PM at GLAD*.

We're very excited that Hillary Rettig, author of The Lifelong Activist: How to Change the World Without Losing Your Way, has agreed to facilitate this training. Below is the workshop description:

Time Management
This workshop begins with a discussion of how time should be viewed and valued; why one needs to manage it; and how successful people tend to view and use time. Then we move onto the five foundational principles of time management, and contrast examples of managed and unmanaged time schedules. We then discuss right and wrong ways to use time, lifestyles that support and inhibit success, and techniques for budgeting and tracking your time. We also discuss how to set priorities; how to decide and maintain boundaries; and how to “create” time through delegation and other techniques. Finally, we discuss tips for sticking to your schedule, and dealing with unsupportive people. After the workshop, many participants report being more productive and less stressed.

6:00-6:30 Socializing - bring your own dinner
6:30-8:00 Training
8:00-8:30 Q & A and more socializing

COST: $5-10 at the door

Socializing for Justice -
Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this "Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and build new visions for our movement(s).
