Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

The lunch-hour brown bag series offers an opportunity for graduate students, post-docs, research assistants and faculty in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department to present current research, stories of recent travels to conduct scientific work or other science-related topics. This forum is an excellent opportunity (especially for graduate students) to gain valuable feedback on concepts, methods, statistical analyses and many other aspects of their work. Brown bag has an informal atmosphere that fosters dynamic discussions and friendly conversation.

I'm sorry, but women just need to stop apologizing
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Fact 1: Women tend to over-apologize

Fact 2: Apologizing tends to decrease women’s abilities to be heard and have impact.

With these facts in mind, this Buff talk gets into the impact that these two, often unknown, facts have on women’s careers and career ladders. We will look at the systemic implications of this, and the difficulties in breaking these societal norms through discussion. We will be starting with a presentation and then open the conversation up to dialogue with all participants, with the emphasis on being the “what now,” working to determine how to make change as a woman or an ally.

*We recognize gender as a non-binary and fluid construct. While we will be discussing apologizing from a cis perspective, given our own identities and privileged perspectives as cis-women, we invite and highly encourage all participates to share their stories.

Stop Apologizing
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Women tend to over-apologize, which decreases their ability to be heard and have impact.  Come learn more about the implications of over-apologizing.

Silicon Flatirons: Crash Course - Creating a Great Company Culture
5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

This Crash Course focuses on how to find, keep and develop employees who create a great company culture. This Crash Course is useful to individuals who lead businesses of all sizes, as well as individuals looking to join a company that is a strong cultural fit. Hiring is one of a company’s most critical functions. A company’s culture is a function of its people. How to create and maintain a healthy culture changes as a company grows. When your company is small, you know the name of each employee. You will interact often. Communications are simpler and problems are easier to solve. As a company scales, you must identify new ways to maintain and nurture your culture, so that it grows with your company and is not left behind. Finding employees that “fit” your culture is essential.

Relying on her clinical psychology background, Natalie Baumgartner will discuss how to quantify your organizational culture and find the best potential candidates for your role. Ashley Goldsmith will share some of her anecdotes learned from building Workday into one of the top places to work in the Bay Area. Beyond hiring, identifying and retaining high-functioning team members is crucial to a healthy culture. Scott Drake will examine key metrics about team member satisfaction. These measures reveal likelihood of retention among high-functioning team members. Use of mentorship, a focus on team member development, and other tools to enhance culture are examined. Each session will include a moderated discussion with all presenters, followed by audience Q&A.

7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

By Rick Elice
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever wondered what Peter Pan’s childhood was like before Wendy met him in Neverland? Rick Elice’s play, based on a best-selling 2006 novel, travels back to Peter’s early adventures in an orphanage, aboard a weather-beaten ship holding precious cargo, and on a magical remote island. “Peter and the Starcatcher” takes the theatergoers to golden grottoes, deep jungles and active volcanoes on adventures just as exciting as those in the classic story we all know and love.
