Hello beautiful community!
I’m so excited to announce that I will finally be a GUEST SPEAKER on Nov. 5th, 10am-5pm PDT in beautiful Santa Monica, CA at this incredible 1 day workshop : Healing Toxicity in the Workplace: It Starts with Us
This was one of the things I really wanted to manifest this year and the day has finally arrived… in a very full-circle kind of way of course!
If you don’t know my story, I started my second professional career in the CG/VFX world back in 2008 and eventually worked at some of the biggest animation studios in Southern California before I left the industry in 2021 to pursue this life full-time.
In all those years I made great friends and colleagues but I also experienced blatant sexism, micro-aggressions, humiliation, threats and was punished when I spoke up. Not to mention I was undervalued, under appreciated, and wayyy underpaid in a male dominated industry…many times having to advocate for, coddle, and baby-sit the same people who perpetrated this behavior. Too soon? I don't think so. The tech and entertainment industries are riddled with toxicity.. not ALL but a lot.
I made the difficult decision to finally leave a career that was poised to take off in a new and better environment, but the damage had already been done. I was OUT! And, if it’s not obvious, I don’t regret leaving. I’m happier and more fulfilled in my work now than I ever thought possible!
While I know that things are improving for women in the workplace, it’s not enough. There is still A LOT of work to be done for women, especially for WOC and other marginalized people.
Please join us for an intimate gathering as this small but mighty team starts a revolution to normalize healing in corporate settings
In this one-day workshop, you will be guided through environmental, relational, and self grounding exercises to navigate the pervasive toxicity capitalism has created in workplaces.
You will dive into self awareness and reclaim your emotional self as it relates to your peers in and out of work.
You will be given tools to navigate difficult conversations through non-violent communication and self compassion.
And you will see what is possible beyond the current patriarchal structure by embodying gentle yet powerful leadership qualities.
Create the workplace environment you’ve always envisioned, it starts with us.
NO, this is not another “yoga retreat” with journaling, mimosas and muffins. No shade but we've been there done that.
This is an opportunity to go deep and workshop some stuff out. It's time to look inward and provide a space for each participant to reflect on how they show up in the workplace, specifically for fox in leadership roles. We need to begin to openly (and safely) discuss some very important topics like self-awareness, boundaries, non-violent communication and how to rise above toxic patriarchal structures - regardless of race or gender.
We are not machines. We are people working together, with a common goal...why not heal together too?
Hope to see you there!
PLEASE SHARE with your communities, organizations or leaders that would benefit from having this in their awareness. Thank you! :)
