Over the past few years, the term self-care has been used to help us think of ways we can avoid burnout, feel better, and take better care of our mental health overall. As a result, many companies have also joined the self-care movement by implementing initiatives for their employees. Some initiatives include: care kits for pregnant employees, childcare, counseling for individuals and couples, and wellness days that include massages, snacks, and yoga. While these are important initiatives and supportive to employees, we want to explore what care can look like as a community. Community care is a term that allows us to expand the conversation of individual care. It encourages us to ask ourselves: how can we show up for our colleagues, too? Join us as we network and discuss what community care looks like in the workplace.

Special thanks to WeWork for providing space!
WeWork is a global network of workspaces where companies grow together. Teams of any size can find refreshingly designed collaborative space, private offices, and meeting rooms that energize their employees and their guests. But WeWork is so much more than four walls—providing community, amenities, events, and technology to evolve space into experience.FAQs
When should I arrive?
Our event starts at 6 PM. Please try not to come by before then– while we love to see your friendly faces, we need that time to set up and get everything ready before things get going. You’ll just be sitting around awkwardly otherwise and that’s no fun for anyone.
Can I transfer my ticket?
We currently do not accept ticket transfers, so if you know you can’t go, please update your ticket information by editing it via the link provided to you in your Eventbrite email.
What do I need to bring to an event?
Other than your smiles? You should bring a form of ID. You won’t need to print out the PDF of the ticket, though– we will look you up when you arrive using all the digital things.
What can I expect?
Take a look at our FAQs on the website!
Where can I park?
All of our events are T-accessible, but we understand that sometimes you have to park. If you do, we recommend you use the BestParking website.
Do you have food that’s gluten free/vegetarian/vegan?
We do request that our sponsors include these options, but we are ultimately beholden to what they order. Most of the time these options are provided!
