Quiet Shifts
In a continuing communal effort to make our space more accessible and comfortable for all our clients and consultants, we're beginning a new "Quiet Shifts" program. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays of this semester we will have dedicated shifts with attention to lower traffic and quieter conversation from 9am - 12 noon. You may choose these times because you work better with fewer distractions, you find it easier to hear when there is less background noise, you want to bring in material that is personal and want to ensure that you can speak about it quietly, and or for another reason entirely.
While we hope these hours will be chosen by folks looking for this specific atmosphere, anyone is invited to book appointments during these times as usual, and for any reason. We do ask, however, that if you book an appointment during a Quiet Shift that you are mindful of keeping the space at a comfortably low volume and energy level.
If you're interested in learning more about quiet shifts, please feel free to reach out to the GWWC director or coordinator for more information.
