The fifth annual Managing in Cougar Country conference for managers and supervisors is scheduled for 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5, in Smith CUE 203.
 
A variety of workshops will focus on the theme “Vision and Collaboration in the WSU Community.” 
 
In addition there will be workshops on what is considered appropriate – and inappropriate – behavior in the workplace. How should you confront inappropriate behavior should it arise?

Its emphasis is to provide participants with the tools necessary to establish appropriate personal behavior standards and maintain a harassment-free workplace at WSU.
 
The conference is sponsored by WSU Human Resource Services.
