Beating Back Burnout Culture in the Progressive Movement

Beating Back Burnout Culture in the Progressive Movement

Session Type(s): Training

Starts: Saturday, Jul. 18 6:00 PM (Eastern)

Ends: Saturday, Jul. 18 7:15 PM (Eastern)

While committing one’s life to the service of others is valiant, doing so at the cost of one’s personal sustainability is counter-productive. The path to a sustainable progressive movement begins with investing in our own personal health, happiness and long-term vision for our careers. In this training, Emilie Aries, founder of personal and professional development training organization, Bossed Up, will review the latest research on burnout, its root causes, and how we all can do more to foster a climate of sustainable success—for ourselves and our movement.
