Skills Workshop: Sustaining Well-being for Last Leg of Pandemic & Beyond

In the last year, we’ve all become experts at getting work done in remote or hybrid workplaces. With the availability of vaccines, we are reaching the last mile of this exhausting and punishing marathon. To cross the finish line, we need to continue to encourage employee well-being, trust, and balance needed to achieve our missions. It’s even more important when the lines between work and personal life are blurred or even non-existent as the pandemic drags into its second year.

It is key to focus on your team’s connection to each other and a culture of well-being, especially when our couches are our watercoolers. We also have to encourage work/life balance, practice extreme self-care without guilt, and adopt digital wellness routines. Personal resilience needs to become the new workplace norm as the world heals from the devastating impact of the Coronavirus.

Join Beth Kanter (, nonprofit thought leader, virtual facilitator, and author of the Happy Healthy Nonprofit for an interactive workshop session on how to build your personal resilience and calm during a time of high anxiety.  She will facilitate an engaging session and share tips to help you maintain work/life balance during this difficult time and help you succeed in post-COVID world.


  • Understand work-life balance practices that many nonprofit professionals are embracing to ensure their resilience while working remotely
  • Learn tips and best practices for digital wellness and how to survive an all-zoom, all-the-time work environment
  • Identify ways with colleagues on how to activate a culture of wellbeing that is supportive of all and simple and low-cost ways to introduce wellbeing programs into your workplace
