Beth Kanter presents:
The Happy, Healthy Nonprofit
Linking Self-Care and Well-Being
Wednesday, September 26 from 9am - noon
at The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management
Nonprofit professionals work hard every day with limited resources which can result in burnout if they do not embrace self-care and the organization does not nurture a culture of well-being in the nonprofit workplace.
This session is about how and why it is important to treat self-care and well-being as an organizational strategy and cultural norm. When self-care initiatives are treated as “extras” instead of being built right into the fabric of an organization’s culture, they are nothing more than a Band-Aid, barely disguising the underlying chronic stress and eroding the nonprofits ability to meet its mission.
This session will share the latest thinking on well-being in the nonprofit workplace based on the presenter's book, “The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout.” Going beyond a narrow focus on physical health and wellness, the session will share examples and insights from nonprofits that have created and implemented a culture of well-being in the workplaces that supports results.
