The program includes funds for conference travel and participation, a robust calendar of workshops and events, and numerous online training opportunities - all designed to support the continuous development of knowledge and skills for the Foothill campus community. Our programs are open to all FHDA district employees.
We all function at three levels at the same time: the personal, the interpersonal, and the organizational. Because we want to believe that we treat everyone “the same,” we tell ourselves that we leave our thoughts and biases at home, yet they show up in our behaviors, our decisions, and our interactions every day. In this session we will explore the importance of being conscious of the attitudes we hold and the impact they have on our behaviors so that we are able to provide the best service possible to all of our students.
