It had been a while since I felt joy or a great passion to do anything. I would wake up, unwillingly open my laptop for work but even at the end of the day, I could get almost nothing done. I tried meditation and exercise but after a moment of calm, it all came back. I tried being positive, grateful and tried living in the moment. Not being able to do any of this successfully, I felt guilty of being an ungrateful wretch only to realize my problem was much bigger than this and meditation alone would not save me.

Having realized this, I focused on understanding the underbelly of hustle culture and why it inevitably leads to burn out. With this session, we want you to walk out with,

  • Understanding how to set an actual work-life integration.
  • Actionable points to help develop an inclusive work culture that focuses on belonging.
  • Reaching a nexus between self-care and community care.
