Working remotely during a pandemic, financial crises, civil unrest, and a seemingly endless list of overlapping emergencies has undeniably added more stress to our lives. Not only have our in-person offices pivoted to virtual or semi-virtual, but our routines and program delivery have been disrupted. 

It is important to focus on your team’s connection to each other and a culture of wellbeing, especially when our couches are our water coolers. It is time to encourage more employee engagement, trust, and balance in the face of extreme uncertainty. We also have to encourage staff to maintain work/life balance and practice self-care.

Join Beth Kanter (, nonprofit thought leader, virtual facilitator, and author of the Happy Healthy Nonprofit, for an interactive keynote session on how to build your personal resilience and calm during a time of high anxiety.  She will facilitate an engaging session on Zoom while sharing tips to help you maintain work/life balance during this difficult time and help you succeed in a post-COVID world.


  • Understand work-life balance practices that many nonprofit professionals are embracing to ensure their resilience while working virtually.

  • Get some practical tips creating a robust culture of wellbeing that is supportive of all and simple and low cost ways to introduce wellbeing programs into your workplace.
