We spend at least one third of our lives at our workplace. Research has proven that social and emotional well-being at work is directly related to productivity and retention.
The best D&I initiatives always have ‘Wellness’ as one of their initiatives, but mental health and social, emotional well-being is one of the least discussed topic in D&I.
Before COVID-19, this topic was probably associated with a select few individuals or groups. With the dramatic change in the way we had to adapt to COVID-19 and a large number of people now working from home, this is a topic that is relatable to all individuals and even more important while working with individuals who are marginalized, have a pre-existing mental health issue or disability.
Employers now have to make sure that each of their employee working remotely and potentially managing various stressors in their lives whether its parenting, home schooling, caring for a loved one, lack of income or anything else, feel supported, understood, heard and belonged in the organization.
Join us for a panel of experts who will discuss this topic and help us to:
- Identify trauma and understand the impact on overall wellness.
- Develop tools for supporting and growing resiliency for your team members and community.
- Learn about community resources.
The event will take place on Thursday, May 7 at 2 p.m. via a Zoom meeting.
