Leading to Well-Being Speaker Series

Our New Leading to Well-Being Speaker Series Kicks Off with Anjali Patel, author of Humanity at Work

Tuesday, September 14 | Noon to 1:30 p.m.

 
Are you or your staff feeling a lack of engagement at work? A recent Gallup poll shows that 54% of employees feel the same way. Disengagement is highly related to the lack of inclusivity in work culture. Talking about diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI), and well-being can be challenging. Implementing organization-wide changes to create a more compassionate workforce can feel insurmountable. But with the right tools, they don't have to be. Learn best practices based on the latest well-being research in George Mason University’s new Leading to Well-Being Speaker Series.
 
Our Leading to Well-Being Speaker Series features presentations from innovative speakers who work at the intersection of leadership and well-being. They will share some of the latest well-being research and insights with you. After each presentation, you can use what you’ve learned to fuel your professional and personal success. Plan to join us online with your colleagues and friends. These presentations are offered for free by the Center for the Advancement of Well-Being. Dive deeper by exploring our Leading to Well-Being Certificate Programs, as well.
 
Join us on September 14 at noon with an inaugural presentation from Anjali Bindra Patel, J.D., author of the bestselling book Humanity at Work: Diversity, Inclusion, and Well-Being in an Increasingly Distributed Workforce.
