Historical Reminiscents EP 33: Practicing Kindness and Gratitude

Sign reading Kindness is Magic.

If you’ve listened to me speak about emerging professionals and mentoring you probably know I have strong feels about creating space and how we as a profession should welcome new folks.  Academic and heritage spaces can be intimidating for new professionals, first generation folks, and marginalized people.  This episode tackles how we can take a more active approach to kindness and gratitude in our work.  How can academic spaces be spaces of radical kindness? How can we do a better job of recognizing and supporting the work of others? How can we be kinder to ourselves?

I would love to hear how other folks practice gratitude and kindness in their work, leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.
