Share Mental Wellbeing and the Workplace - Minding The Gender Gap

Event Details

For true gender equity in the workplace, we need to recognize how our mental health and wellbeing is connected to our ability to lead and how those issues impact how we are seen as leaders. That includes how bad stress and other barriers unique to women disproportionately impact the overall mental health of the workplace and it’s impact on getting more women into leadership.



Join us on March 28th:

• Meet other like-minded leaders and hear from leading business and academic leaders.

• Be a part of a world-wide movement to empower more healthy female leadership at all levels.

• Gain a deeper understanding of workplace strategies that can help women lead well.


We’ll discuss:

• Workforce and the mental wellbeing challenge.

• What organizations can do to help their teams thrive.

• How leadership can better address personal stressors for both women and men to help them be more resilient and better innovators.

And you’ll have a chance to add your voice to the conversation.
