Living Our Values: Supervision and Feedback for Survivor-Serving Organizations

Title:  Living Our Values:  Supervision and Feedback for Survivor-Serving Organizations

Question-and-Answer Dialogue

Date: Thursday, June 9, 2022

Time: 12:00 noon PT, 1:00 MST, 2:00 pm CT, 3:00 pm ET (60 min)


Supervisors within domestic and sexual violence organizations provide supportive guidance for staff to lead and manage projects. Effective supervisors need to have the ability to engage in generative feedback that maintains mutual accountability and trust, advances equity, and supports professional growth.

Facilitators will review questions related to staff supervision and feedback as a follow-up to the supervision webinar series held in December 2021.  Sample topics include: navigating transition and different supervision styles, “managing up” when you’re a supervisor in the middle, diverse team members, trauma-informed feedback, and situational leadership.  Submit additional questions and share any tools you’ve used since the first two parts of the series through the registration.
