Over the last year, the spotlight on racial inequities in the workplace has highlighted that there is a serious lack of dialogue, resources and programming to address the specific mental health challenges and needs of BIPOC professionals in the context of racism. In fact, it’s increasingly evident that many organizations’ existing mental health inclusion practices minimize the experiences of BIPOC professionals.
During bci’s free webinars over the last year, we have repeatedly received questions from BIPOC professionals about how to address mental health challenges that are related to racism. To help answer the myriad questions we’ve received, we’re dedicating our May webinar to this topic.
Join bci’s experts in racial inclusion — Ritu Bhasin, an expert in interrupting internalized racism and healing racialized trauma, and Komal Bhasin, a racial equity expert and a mental health clinician — as they have an informal dialogue on:
· How racism can impact BIPOC mental health
· The intersection between racial trauma and mental health and how it specifically affects BIPOC professionals’ experiences of burnout in the workplace
· Building resilience as BIPOC professionals
· How to stand in your power in the face of racism as a BIPOC professional
All are welcome to attend – BIPOC professionals who are looking to learn more about how to thrive in the face of racism; white leaders and team members who want to learn more about the impact of racism on BIPOC mental health and how to be better allies. The Bhasin sisters hope to see you then!
