This June 18 workshop will feature the expertise of Elena Chang, Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) at Theatre Communications Group (TCG).

New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is pleased to offer arts administrators and arts professionals in all disciplines, organization types, and sizes the opportunity to participate in its new “Creative Careers” online workshop series. The series is curated by Mara Vlatković and designed to guide you on the ins and outs of being a professional in the arts industry. The third workshop in the series, “Navigating Office Politics,” presented by Elena Chang, Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (ED&I) at Theatre Communications Group (TCG), will take place online on Tuesday, June 18 from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM EST.

Workshop Description:
There is no workplace without office politics. Water cooler conversations, favoritism, micromanagement, work friends—they’re all part of a larger structure that informs your day-to-day work experience. Learn how to navigate and use the organizational framework of your workplace to advance and excel in your career. Small changes and adjustments can have a large impact and can make everyone’s work day easier and more comfortable. Identify new ways of managing up or down and how to grow in organizations that might lack support, professional development, or HR best practices.
