Diversity, Equity, and InclusionWorkshop

March 26 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

Join us for our newest workshop, Centering Wellness for DEI Changemakers in the Workplace. We’ll use somatics and embodiment (exercises that connect your body and mind) to help you navigate the burnout that can happen when doing the critical work of supporting a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplace.

Through interactive discussions and practical strategies, you’ll leave equipped with skills designed to support your whole self, ensuring your efforts aren’t only impactful but sustainable while driving authentic and profound organizational change. This workshop is for those who need emotional support, connection, and a recharge!

Using a holistic and healing approach, during this workshop, you’ll:

  • Discuss your personal and collective vision for equitable and inclusive workplaces
  • Gain insights into how your nervous system responds to everyday DEI-related stressors and have the opportunity to reflect on somatic practices and strategies that may be impactful in the short and long-term
  • Find ways to incorporate practices and strategies during challenging and non-challenging moments
