CONFERENCE OF INTEREST - The Women's Mental Health & Leadership conference
February 11th from 6pm - 10pm in the Convention Center in the Second Student Center at York University (Toronto).
The conference will highlight the multitude of systemic, structural, and socio-cultural factors that impact women’s mental health and leadership potential in fields such as business, politics, academia, STEM, research, and tech. What types of barriers to leadership do women in these fields face? How did such barriers impact their mental health and well-being? How do they continuously challenge systems that perpetuate gender inequality?
The professional speakers and workshop facilitators will provide women with strategies they can use to enhance their mental health and confidence to be impactful leaders who challenge systems that perpetuate injustice and who manifest positive changes in their communities.
Speakers include: Rhonelle Bruder (Founder of the RISE program), Megan Kirk Chang (PhD Candidate leading the first research study in Canada that investigates an online mind-body intervention to help alleviate symptoms of posttraumatic stress among young adults with PTSD), Ayana Webb (process designer at UofT), and Brittany Maclean (former Canadian Olympic swimmer) and two student leaders on campus Tashin Rodoshi and Ariella Kantorowitz.
Workshops on: Conflict resolution & negotiations (Osgoose Hall Law School), Healing from Trauma (Megan Kirk Chang), and Women's Leadership & Self-Care (WMHT Executives).
