Beyond Mindfulness – Exploring Structural Opportunities for Change in the Workplace
In this HR Learning Series, participants will learn about different approaches to supporting and maintaining health and “resilience” in the workplace. A specific focus will be on moving beyond individualized understandings of health and resiliency towards examining how health and resiliency in the workplace is socially organized. In doing so, participants will develop a “structural competency” lens to issues in the workplace.
