Upcoming Philanthropy HUB Events

Trauma-Sensitive Resiliency: Toolkit for Systemic Wellbeing
with Erin Sibley Doerwald, LCSW
Thursday, September 9, 2021, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Participants will engage in experiential resiliency strategies that will enhance their well-being in the process of the workshop, leaving them feeling grounded, soothed, and renewed while at the same time, offering ways this can be implemented in the context of their work as non-profit leadership and staff. Understandably, vicarious trauma and burnout are at an all time high in the helping professions and nonprofit world. As professionals in these settings, we hold space for the human stories and challenging personal contexts that our colleagues and clients bring into the room, as well as our own. During the past 18 months, this has become increasingly harder to bear as the cumulative and collective stress continues and often is intensified.
This workshop helps us work with both - practicing how to sit with our own discomfort while we hold space for the discomfort of others. It explores how we might be aware of and offer information on trauma-sensitivity in our workplaces while also being trauma-sensitive ourselves.

with Marsie Silvestro and Ross Chaney

COVID is a health issue, however has divided people by political belief. This division is seeping into how people respond to workplace policies. How do we minimize risks and maximize connection? Building power, access and equity in community needs to start with workplace policies.
