Beyond ‘Toughing It Out’: a conversation on mental health in the social change workplace Webinar
Date: 14 June 2023
Time: 17:00 (CEST) / 08:00 (PDT) / 23:00 (HKT)
Who it’s for: social impact directors, managers, board members, consultants, team members, and funders— anyone who is involved in social change and has felt or witnessed its mental and emotional weight.
What you’ll gain: Strategies for supporting mental health within your team as you pursue social change together.
It is no secret that the work of social change is hard on social change makers, who are frequently on the front lines of addressing the urgent problems of their communities. And yet, too many of us are tempted to minimize or even deny the effects of these hardships by trying to “soldier on” or “tough it out” in the name of the greater good. The toll of this on our mental health is immense— and ultimately unsustainable. We must find new ways to respond to the mental and emotional hardships we face in our sector.
In this webinar, social entrepreneurs Enoch Li and Daisy Rosales will explore some sustainable strategies to support mental health within your social change team discussed in our article being published by the Stanford Social Innovation Review in June. Bringing perspectives from East Asia and the United States, as well as collaborations across the world, Enoch and Daisy will discuss what it looks like to integrate mental health into the work of social change for the healing and wellbeing of us all – from a self-management perspective, and from an organizational change perspective.
