Weekly Community Conversations - Healing Justice for Trauma Experienced in the Workplace

When:  Jun 17, 2024 from 11:00 AM to 11:50 AM (PT)
Associated with  Animal Welfare Professionals

Call Topic: Healing Justice for Trauma Experienced in the Workplace

If you have ever struggled with work-life balance and the impact of work stressors or you are in a position to create organizational changes, this is the session for you! Hear from two BIPOC women who have worked in high volume shelters/clinics about the impact of burnout and how they have healed. The workshop will focus on the importance of centering healing justice, a collective healing framework, that will ultimately benefit individuals, teams and organizations as a whole. We will define the types of burnout one might experience and provide examples, specifically those that we experienced and overcame throughout our careers in animal welfare. We will go over strategies we found useful to prevent burnout as individuals, and we’ll share recommendations for using a healing justice framework in which teams can support each other and work together to prevent and address burnout. Additionally, we provide recommendations to promote wellbeing and support healing amongst teams that helped us in our journey. Understanding the signs and causes of burnout, as well as working together to prevent it and overcome it, is incredibly important in ensuring a balance in our lives to be able to show up to work in a way that is thoughtful and intentional.

Guest Speakers:

  • @Nadia Oseguera-Ramon, CA State Program Manager at UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program
  • @Ivy Ruiz, Outreach Specialist at UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program
