Hello again! Next week is our Third Thursday virtual meetup. We will have Zoom breakouts for 10 minutes, hear a 10 minute presentation from our speakers, and have Q&A. Our goal is to provide a venue to connect with other entrepreneurs and people interested in the tech/startup community and to learn actionable insights from founders.
April 22nd @ noon: Over the past year, we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of discussions around mental health in the workplace. Why is this a workplace issue? Is it just a trend or is it good business to talk about? What should companies be doing to support their employees? And what can individuals do for themselves and for anyone around them who may be struggling? As COVID case counts decline, will we similarly “get back to normal” in the mental health arena? Or is this topic here to stay?
On Thursday, we’ll hear from some of the leaders who are pushing the conversation to the top of the list.
Sawyer Norman. Internal Operations at Divvy by day, Mental health crusader by destiny and founder of Keep On, an apparel brand with a mission to end the stigma around mental health.
