About the session: We hear the phrase "Draw Your Boundaries" so often, but how practical is it, really (especially in the Indian arts)? We occupy professional spaces in which being "easy to work with" and "flexible" are commendable professional traits. But, at what cost? We believe being a great collaborator and respecting your limits are both equally essential to professional conduct. Making assertive decisions to draw boundaries, define limits, and articulate your stance often involve weighing options and priorities, which can take a large emotional and mental toll on an individual. This session aims to unpack the practicalities of drawing boundaries, while giving you the tools to help make complex decisions with greater ease and meaningful support.
Please note that everyone's situation is unique and different, and conversations in this session should not be interpreted as advice.
Content warning: Sexual & nonsexual workplace misconduct, boundary-setting.
Session 5 objectives:
1. Explore the practicalities of boundary setting in a space where it is new and has not been the norm
2. Explore avenues for support to aid in the decision making leading up to boundary setting
3. Explore new ways to perceive boundary setting and how it can overlap with professional conduct to make for a healthy experience
