The Happy Healthy Nonprofit with Beth Kanter

The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Linking Self-Care and Wellbeing to Organizational Impact
This keynote is about how and why it is important to treat self-care and a culture of well-being as an organizational strategy and cultural norm. When self-care initiatives are treated as “extras” instead of being built right into the fabric of an organization’s culture or leadership does not model the behavior, they often fall flat.

Beth will share the latest thinking on self-care and well-being in the nonprofit workplace based on the presenter’s book “The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout.” Going beyond a narrow focus on physical health and wellness, she will share examples and insights from nonprofits that have created and implemented a culture of well-being in the workplaces that supports results.

Learn about the big return on investment that happens when your organization prioritizes well-being in the workplace
Understand the influence and role that leadership, employee engagement, and organizational culture play in implementing initiatives to encourage employee wellbeing
Learn about simple and examples to activate a culture of wellbeing in your organization’s workplace that truly has impact
