EAP Webinar: Cultivating Mindfulness in Everyday Life

Mindfulness is the simple act of being aware. This is not always easy: We live in a culture that does not reward slowing down, watching a sunrise, taking a lunch break, or resting. Rather, our culture rewards bigger, better, faster, and more. When we chronically live in the fast lane, we can lose an essential intimate connection with ourselves, colleagues and family members. This loss often results in depression, fatigue, disillusionment and restlessness. This seminar will introduce you to mindfulness and invite you to experiment with various ways to cultivate it in your everyday life.

EAP Webinar: Fostering Inclusivity in the Remote World

Wanting to feel included is a basic human desire. This desire is with us from birth and carries through to the first day at kindergarten, to the first day of a new job, and appears in many other areas. With over forty percent of workers reporting feelings of isolation, what sort of climate promotes inclusion? What does inclusion look like in a dispersed, remote workforce? In this presentation, we will define “inclusiveness” as it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will discuss challenges to foster inclusive climates within a remote workforce, and we will provide actionable tools to begin connecting with and leading your team.
