The League ChatBox is a new program offered online for small groups to engage and discuss important issues.  Get answers, share ideas, learn together.

For those who have remained employed while colleagues have lost their jobs during the pandemic, there can be an experience of feeling guilty for having survived. This sense of guilt may add stress to all the other feelings and experiences we’re trying to manage during this tough time. In this Chat Box we’ll talk about what “survivor guilt” is, then spend time surfacing and releasing it in small groups.

We encourage attendance from people in any field of international education who have maintained employment during the pandemic and struggled with guilt around this. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join the conversation, which will be topical and relevant to all. We love to see a diverse audience at our events!

If you are actively job hunting and are having difficulties maintaining motivation within your search, please join us for My Career: Perseverance Through Unemployment, Tuesday, March 30, 4 PM CDT.
