Charlotte Matthews, UVA Alumni Career Services

In this webinar, alumna and Associate Professor Charlotte Matthews (Col ’88, Associate Professor, Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies) will offer both practical and notional thoughts on silence. She will argue that, like the Galapagos penguin, silence is on the endangered list, and we need to take it off. You will walk away from this spacious webinar with useful tools to invite more silence into your life and into the lives of your family and colleagues.
