Join us for FRAME!

Have you been asked “How has your job changed during COVID?” or  “How do your job working from home?” recently and are looking for a way to FRAME the conversation? This workshop will help you formulate answers to those questions and more.  IIDA Northland is partnering with ASID MN for an event focused on learning how to effectively communicate what you love about your job, why you do what you do, and how to politely dismiss incorrect assumptions about our profession.

This event has been moved to an online event only!

The discussion will be facilitated by Rebecca Bergner and Lisa Wocken of Bolster Leadership – see bios below!
