DEIB Roundtable: Burnout, Mental Health & DEIB


Gathering intentionally to support, learn, and take action re the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) spectrum via expertise sharing followed by group discussions in breakout rooms.

Mon, Jun 7, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

June's topis is burnout. What kind of burnout are we facing these days? How does it affect us and our workplaces? How does it affect each of us differently? 

Our guest expert will open the event with her perspective, ideas, and advice, then we'll break into smaller groups to relate this back to our individual circumstances through sharing to receive, and give, applicable advice. 

"Over half of women surveyed in a 2021 CNBC and SurveyMonkey poll said their mental health at work was suffering to the point of burnout. For women of color, the numbers are worse. Black women experience accelerated “ biological aging” in response to repeatedly encountering stress. While 9.8 million working mothers in America experience workplace burnout, it’s more pronounced for Black, Latina and Asian mothers, according to the largest study on working parents to date." - The New York Times, In Her Words

Through the years, we’ve built a coalition of courageous, dedicated, and kind women who show up for each other.

These recurring events provide an opportunity for authentic, vulnerable conversation: to connect, crowd-source solutions, receive and give support, and brainstorm ideas and innovation in these uncharted times.

Mobilize Women is a movement based on Ellevate Network’s purpose of achieving equality for all, by giving diverse voices, especially those of women, a seat at the table where decisions are made.
