Identity & Computing Lecture Series: Self-Care is an Act of Resistance
Join The Alliance for Identity-Inclusive Computing Education (AiiCE) for a webinar focused on mental health, self-care, and ensuring that as you do this important work in computing, you make time to ensure you are healthy and whole. Now more than ever, we know the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Thankfully, individuals like you have stepped up to help make a difference. While your efforts are valued and critical to achieving a better world, will the world be better if you aren't?
This session will explore the difficulties of being a passionate social justice advocate while maintaining well-being. You will gain insight into how and why we should avoid martyrdom and live a lifestyle of embodied self-care. This session will be led by Dr. Elizabeth Joy. Dr. Elizabeth Joy is a human behavior and business expert who lends her leadership in various initiatives and organizations beyond her own to improve individual, organizational, and societal outcomes. Dr. Joy's work centers on reimagining and redefining success as a lifestyle of holistic well-being that facilitates self-actualization.
