Are you a leader aiming to build a more inclusive workplace and be proactive about your staff’s overall well-being? The antiracism movement has inspired many leaders to move beyond performative action to create an equitable workplace while the pandemic has brought into laser-focus the need to support staff’s mental health. This webinar tackles both of these challenges with iOpening Enterprises’ unique whole-person, whole-organization approach that uses a wellness and trauma-informed lens to promote anti-racist workplaces. Building on the science of compassionate workplaces, this engaging discussion led by Dr. Isaiah Pickens and leaders from a variety of industries will provide practical strategies to begin building an anti-racist and compassionate workplace from the leader up.
For many students, especially the most vulnerable, they have been forced to return to school bearing the weight of trauma caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, its aftermath, and the recent headlines surrounding racial injustice. From dealing with escalating incidences of domestic violence and economic recession, many students and staff have taken a considerable social and emotional toll.
During this webinar, the speakers will examine:
· How trauma-informed, culturally-responsive practices can support students who have been impacted by current events
· The increased pressure school districts are facing to provide student and staff support both virtually and in-person
· Practical tools and strategies superintendents and school leaders can implement immediately to help staff and students navigate and excel during this time.
