Postsecondary professionals should work towards change in the workplace: Opinion


As the new academic year begins, postsecondary professionals should work towards creating change rather than returning to the status quo and solidifying associated problems, write Wilmarie Rodriguez and Amy Carpenter. While many professionals are burnt out from their responsibilities, the authors write that this is an optimal time to work toward change and be active in voicing concerns. The authors encourage postsecondary employees to acknowledge the power they have, reflect on what needs to change, and start conversations with others about what needs to change. To enforce this change, they advise considering how tasks can be broken down into manageable chunks and evaluating and adjusting expectations. “Our individual efforts constitute a communal wave that has the power to turn the tide on decades-old, or even centuries-old, systems and structures,” write the authors.
