    EPIP CO | May Coffee Chat

    EPIP Colorado invites you to our virtual May Coffee Chat to discuss the “new normal.”  What does a return to the office look like for your organization – has it already happened? How do we see ourselves engaging with grantee and community partners in the coming months? What do we need to keep in mind from an equity perspective as decisions are made? Join the conversation to discuss how we are navigating the knowns and unknowns of this transition, individually and within our organizations. Feel free to enjoy your favorite breakfast beverage and snacks!

    Here are a few resources you can check out as background for our conversation:

    EPIP LA | Redefining Self-Care with Jor-El Caraballo and Omar Brownson

    Over the past year, many of us have hit a “pandemic wall” characterized by Zoom fatigue, a lack of motivation, and burnout. Unfortunately, these strains to our physical and mental health are likely to persist even as we resume our lives after the pandemic. To build our personal resilience, we will have to reckon with emotional stressors, break unhelpful cycles, and create space to prioritize our wellness. 

    This event is presented in partnership with Southern California Grantmakers as part of their evolving Conversation Series, where progress-centered conversations meet tomorrow’s leaders. To kick off the series, we are excited to host therapist and mental wellness advocate Jor-El Caraballo, LMHC & Co-founder of Viva Wellness, and Omar Brownson, Co-founder & CEO of gthx. Together, Omar and Jor-El will recount their journeys as mental health advocates, unpack the oversaturated concept of self-care, discuss personal and professional boundaries, and explore how we can incorporate wellness into our daily lives.
