Round Tables for Senior Leaders are designed to benefit senior leaders from creative businesses and nonprofit organizations to convene with peers to discuss ideas, context, and emotions; to make sense; and re-orient their visions and actions.
This 90-minute Round Table presentation is designed to address the current mental health climate to open up conversation and collaboration about how to approach the topic of mental health within your organization from a position of leadership. The discussion will include:
- How we talk about mental health (vocabulary, generational divide, stigma and bias)
- How we can make mental health a regular/ongoing topic of discussion
- How we can put support plans in place ahead of a crisis
- How we care for ourselves while caring for our teams
Heather R. Bodie, Executive Artistic Director of Erasing the Distance will lead this open conversation about mental health in an effort to increase the ways we can support ourselves and our colleagues, not only in light of the events of this past year, but as an ongoing practice. Read Heather’s bio.
This Round Table is generously underwritten by the Arts Work Fund.
