Wellbeing for Ethnic Minority Women: Co-creation Session
AudienceOpen to BITC members and non-members
Thu, 08 April 2021 @ 11:00 – 12:30
This webinar will pilot the upcoming Business in the Community (BITC) toolkit supporting Black, Asian and ethnic minority women with managing mental health challenges presented by the workplace. It will focus on the three key areas of finding your voice, owning your narrative and sharing your experiences.
About the webinar
We will use this webinar as an opportunity to test the practical tools and insights contained in the toolkit with attendees ahead of its official launch on 9 June at the Inclusive Leadership: wellbeing and ethnic minority women webinar. We will also consult attendees on the role of managers in supporting the wellbeing of their team. Please come ready with examples you have seen of a supportive manager, or what you think it means to be a compassionate, empathetic and inclusive leader in the workplace. We are excited to hear your voice and include your insights in the final output.
We will be joined by Tamikah Andrew-Thomas, an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist and Delrose Bowes an Humanistic Integrative Counsellor. They are two certified black counsellors with 28 years of combined experience in responding to mental health challenges presented by a lack of racial inclusion and belonging. They will take an intersectional approach to mental health, examining the ways in which risk factors are compounded by ethnicity and gender.
This webinar is open to both BITC members and non-members. It would be suitable for HR/people management managers/practitioners and wellbeing managers/practitioners.
