At Minnestar, we’re known for some of the largest community events where thousands of technologists come together to learn, build, connect and grow. However, we realize that not everyone is able to attend in-person events. So we’re bringing the learning and connection to you!

 

Each month, we are hosting a virtual AMA (or Ask Me Anything) session on a different topic with subject matter experts from our community. Ask questions, and learn from the best of the best – all via an easy Zoom webinar link.

 

This month is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we are pleased to have Laurie Healy and Dr. Lisa Lovelace with us to discuss the important topic of mental health in the MN tech community. From anxiety and isolation due to COVID, to best practices in supporting yourself and your staff – this is due to be a great and important conversation.

 

Healthy workplaces are vital to our productivity, contribution and overall contentment. However, the stigma of mental health in the workplace has caused very real impact to both employees and employers in the form of decreased engagement, lost productivity, and negative financial implications. Add to that our current reality, where many people are teleworking full-time for the very first time, and experiencing a new sense of isolation. Our routines have been upended, introducing new levels of financial, social and emotional uncertainty.

 

Join us for this conversation where Dr. Lisa Lovelace and Laurie Healy discuss the importance of mental health in the MN Tech community. Topics include:

 

– Financial, social and personal implications of mental health in the workplace

 

– How mental health shows up in the workplace and how we can support colleagues facing mental health disorders

 

– Mental health trends as a result of and exacerbated by COVID 19

 

– Good examples and ideas from other companies that are prioritizing mental health in the workplace and how your organization can act on this as well
