DAIP Program: May's Unfiltered Coffee Chat with Sandra Victorino

Unfiltered Coffee Chat

Tuesday, May 16th, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m

Do you manage other team members within your current role? Are you concerned about your current state of mental health, or that of your coworkers? You’re not alone. 

Nearly one in five Americans live with a mental health condition, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. That presents challenges that must be acknowledged by employers and people-focused organizational leaders, such as human resources practitioners. If you work in a DEI-focused role, you likely face the challenge of addressing additional layers of stress and trauma.

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, DAIP’s May Unfiltered Coffee Chat will be a guided conversation featuring Sandra Victorino, LMHC. Sandra is the co-founder of the Latino Mental Health Network of RI, and currently leads workforce development and community engagement efforts at Care New England. She will center this conversation around how managers can make self-care and collective healing part of their workplace. 

Our Unfiltered Coffee Chat series provides an opportunity for open connection and dialogue that is so crucial for our work. We invite you to come as you are to this guided conversation, to share space and contribute your questions and ideas.

This program has been submitted for HRCI and SHRM CE credits.
