A Path to Resilience: Advancing Executive and Organizational Mental Health and Well Being 

The pandemic has left executives and workers exhausted, uncertain about what the future will look like – office, hybrid, remote – and about how to best steer their ships as we advance towards the post-Covid world. The World Health Organization estimates that depression and anxiety – to take just one measurement of mental wellbeing – cost the global economy 1 trillion USD annually in lost productivity. But how can leaders and organizations better care for employees and make them more resilient to workplace stress?

During this year’s alumni event, we will hear from faculty, industry experts and leaders about how to maintain mental health in the workplace. We will analyze problems raised or heightened by the pandemic, and share guidelines for fostering long-term resilience, stimulating innovation and improving productivity and wellbeing.
