Opening Keynote: Transforming the System: Moving Beyond Trauma and Toward Resilience, Equity, and Health

Given the current global pandemic and racial justice landscape, managing collective stress and supporting a sustainable workplace culture may be the most challenging professional task we face, especially when working with traditionally underserved and high-needs communities. This inspiring and informative keynote will set the context for collective secondary traumatic stress while also examining our multifaceted identities and its impact on our ability to show up authentically, remain resilient, and serve all communities —especially the most vulnerable. CEO & Founder of iOpening Enterprises, Dr. Isaiah Pickens will share stories and science-based strategies for elevating your workplace into one that not only promotes staff mental and emotional wellbeing, but also builds sustainable and equitable systems change for organizations and communities, through psychological safety and bravery.
