Managing Mental Health in the Workplace: How being an Expat can help you and others through this crisis

June 18, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Managing Mental Health in the Workplace: How Being an Expat can help you and others through it

Epidemics and pandemics come with significant mental health impacts that need to be addressed at the societal but also organizational level. We will suggest ways that we can help ourselves and our teams adapt to unchartered territory—everything feels totally different—in the same way that we have learned to adapt to lives across the globe. Where do we look for support? How do we handle setbacks, awkwardness and miscommunication? And how can we and those we manage grow and evolve from this situation?

Finally, we will discuss how the multiple crises caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are changing the nature and role of management and why this could be an opportunity for collective good.

This discussion will start at 3pm EDT on June 18th with 30 minutes presentation and 15 minutes Q&A.

We will send the details to connect to the Zoom meeting via email prior to the event.
