Employees with Children ERG – Do You Know Where Your Kids Have Been? Presented by Information Security
Thursday, October 28th, 2:00 – 3:00pm, Zoom
The Internet can be a scary place. In today’s digitally connected world, families must think about safety and security both online and offline. Most every child is taught basic safety and security, like “Stranger Danger” and to look both ways before crossing the street. It is much harder to teach young people about online safety and privacy. Online security, privacy and safety begins with parents leading the way. Like adults, children must be taught to “Think before you click”, “Share with care”, and “Don’t talk with strangers”. Gary Sheehan, Elon’s Director of Information Security is ready to share some tips about how you can ensure your kids and grandchildren can safely “surf the net” while in your care. Ensuring cybersecurity awareness among family members makes the Internet a safer place for all ages.
By taking this course you will satisfy your information security training requirement for the 2021 school year.
Cultivating Emerging Professionals ERG – Leveraging Your Enneagram Type in the Workplace

Have you ever been asked which Enneagram Type you are? For those who haven’t yet heard about this increasingly popular model, the Enneagram is a system of personality typing that describes patterns in how people interpret the world and manage their emotions. Monica LeBlanc and Hanna Woody from Empowered Enneagram will present a customized workshop to Elon employees helping them identify and then harness the power of their Enneagram type at work. During the two-hour workshop, you can expect to: learn about the history and structure of the Enneagram model, discuss the strengths and challenges of all 9 types, delve into the essence and energetics of each type, apply the basics of the Enneagram to the workplace, and ask our experienced presenters any questions you may have. This will be the ERG’s signature event for the 2021-2022 academic year, so you don’t want to miss it!
