Special Webinar Series – “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay”
Who should attend?
Although this series focuses primarily on supporting professionals of color who work at higher education institutions and community-based organizations, all those who support students through the college journey are encouraged to attend.
About the series
It’s Okay to Not Be Okay addresses the unique and urgent need for self-care, wellness, and collective healing among professionals of color at higher education institutions, community-based organizations, and nonprofits. Coupled with the disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 on minoritized communities, the effects of racial injustice and social upheaval have rendered the work of supporting students increasingly challenging for professionals of color. In this series, we’ll offer tools and resources for fostering mental and emotional stability, work-life balance, and allyship in the workplace.
