Crisis Sensemaking

Sponsored by the ACRL-NEC Leadership Development Committee

Wednesday, November 17, 1:00pm – 2:30pm

As we transition from one event-filled year of uncertainty into another, it can be helpful to reflect on the impact of recent crises and paradigm shifts before turning to what comes next. In this workshop, facilitated by Laura Freebairn-Smith, Partner and co-founder at OPG, you will have the opportunity to identify positive outcomes and changes to sustain going forward in a structured and productive way, as well as learn tools for navigating future crises.

This workshop will cover:

  • Sensemaking of recent crises
  • Bouncing forward – capturing gains and seizing the moment
  • Sustaining beneficial paradigm shifts


  • Registration will be limited to 50 people
