In an era of texts and tweets, communication can suffer. This month’s brown bag training will look at how to use assertiveness and engagement to connect effectively.

“Effective Communication Strategies” will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, May 19, in BSC 341 and via an on-demand webcast. Attendees will learn strategies to become a more engaging communicator, discuss benefits of an assertive approach, and explore how to develop their assertive communication skills. Lunch will be provided for both in-person and online attendees.

Reservations are required by Thursday, May 12. Contact to confirm your in-person or virtual attendance.
