In today's workplace environment, professionals young and old are experiencing burnout as more and more are being asked of them. According to a poll commissioned by Business in the Community with HR firm Mercer, nearly three-quarters of the members in the LGBTQIA+ community have experienced mental health issues because of work.
Step one in fixing any problem is acknowledging it exists so it's time to voice the questions we all have struggled with and find some answers together. Quorum Young Professionals provides a safe space to build, strengthen, and connect our LGBTQIA+ community in the Twin Cities and addressing mental wellness in the workplace is a foundational step in doing so.
Our special guest panel will include:
*Ashley Harp (She/Her and They/Them), OutFront Minnesota
*Sonja Johanson (He/Him and They/Them), Spectrum Wellness Center
