The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Creating a Culture of Well-Being in the Nonprofit Workplace
Nonprofits work hard every day with limited resources which results in burnout if individuals do not embrace self-care and the organization does not nurture a culture of “We-care.”
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 interactive session will share the latest thinking on self-care practices for nonprofits 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 “We-Care Strategy” in their workplaces that helps them achieve impact.
Participants discuss a wide range of examples and best practices of establishing a culture of well-being from nonprofits whose staff are exposed to highly stressful situations when working on issues such as suicide prevention, international human rights, disaster management, refugee support, domestic violence, and more.
This session is co-facilitated by Aisha Moore.
