A Curious Conversation event to cultivate enduring relationships & shape new possibilities while exploring mental health.
Time & Location
Feb 10, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. MST
About the Event
For many, work in the social economy is so much more than a job. It's heart-centred, values aligned, and deeply fulfilling. Yet, passion and purpose do not guarantee positive mental health and wellbeing.
Join us for this three-part conversation where we'll explore mental health in the social economy. Participants will be invited to share observations of the current systems and narratives, as well as the potential levers for change they see for social entrepreneurs, in their work, and in the ecosystem.
Topics for each of the three sessions are as follows:
- Mental Health in the Social Economy. An in-depth look at norms, cultures, and systems in the social economy and their relation to mental health. We’ll explore the weight of the work that we do, and how caring deeply can sometimes take a toll.
- Mental Health in my Environment. An opportunity for observations about how mental health affects teams, organizations, and the work that they do.
- Mental Health in Moving Forward. A look into our ideal future, and the tools and strategies we might use to get us there.
These conversations are part of the Curious Conversations held in partnership between AB Seed and Innovate Calgary. This three-part series will feature guest facilitation from Collectively Tangled, a social enterprise in Calgary that offers mental health training to the innovation sector.
