Join us on Clubhouse to discuss how to consider and manage mental health as leaders and entrepreneurs in this expanding workforce.
Everyone in the knowledge and open talent economy knew that mental health was central to performance before Covid. When our brain is our engine, we need to learn about how it works how to best maintain it. Please join us, along with featured guests Carin-Isabel Knoop and Bahia El Oddi, as we discuss how to think about mental health and how to manage extreme stress.
Carin-Isabel Knoop: For decades, Carin had been writing about managers and entrepreneurs featured in Harvard Business School. She was surprised by the lack of focus on mental health, an issue key to productivity, success, and equilibrium at work. Already sensing the upcoming mental health pandemic, she co-authored “Compassionate Management of Mental Health in the Modern Workplace” in 2018. She has become since then a frequent contributor to the U.S., French and Spanish-language press and a speaker on mental health and equity at work. Her mission is to rewrite the rules of mental health at work.
Bahia El Oddi: It took Bahia a few stints in investment banking, consulting, tech, and an MBA from Harvard Business School to discover the potential of startups and shift her career to social and educational entrepreneurship. She co-founded TRUE Africa University out of MIT and CoCaSha, to break with mental health stigmas and to support wellbeing at work. In parallel, she pursues her passion and the powers of art and art therapy at the Dar El Oddi Cultural Center in Morocco, where she is also leading the creation of “The School of Muses”, a wellbeing center focused on local arts and crafts. Feel free to join us along with some of the best and brightest thinkers in the world as we transform work. You are more than welcome to just listen in and we encourage you to engage in the conversation when you feel the time is right.
