Soft Skills for Shared Spaces Workshop Series

Over the years the AMT community has experienced growing pains. And it turns out many of these growing pains are not unique to AMT or even makerspaces. We are proud to have partnered with Emily Bowen MA, ABS to bring a 3 workshop series on soft skills. The focus is on soft skills for inclusion, sharing and challenging situations. These workshops are primarily geared towards leaders and instructors though community members in general, will learn great skills.

We have a limited number of sponsored tickets for each workshop. Contact [email protected] to request a sponsored tickets if finances are an issue.
