Are you ready for ‘guided discernment’ to keep down your workplace stress?

On March 27, two GU business faculty members will discuss their insights into how women can manage stress. The event will start at 10 a.m. in the McCarthey Athletic Center's Herak Room. 

It's free to the public.

The presenters are Molly Pepper and Peggy Sue Loroz. Both women have conducted research on the types of stress women encounter in the workplace and how they can best deal with it.

The press relief from GU pretty much boiled the advice into three nuggets:

Firtst, women should create boundaries around productive time to maximize time-management, increase planning, and minimize stressful work-related emergencies.

Second, women are encouraged to establish an affinity group to support one another.

Third, the advice is for women to develop "guided discernment" to discover their personal “Mighty Purpose” and develop strategies to keep that purpose in front of them at all times.

Pepper teaches classes in human resource management, ethics in human resources, management and organizations, and developing people and organizations.

After earning a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M in 1987, Pepper earned a master’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1997 and a doctorate from Arizona State University in 2004.

Loroz teaches classes in consumer behavior, persuasion and marketing ethics. After receiving her bachelor’s degree from Gonzaga in 1995, Loroz earned a doctorate from the University of Colorado in 2000.
