About the Event
If you are paying on a sliding scale, please use the code SlidingScale with the amount you need discounted counting by 5's. For example, if you can pay $45, you will use the code SlidingScale5. The lowest sliding scale rate is $25.
If you have the funds available to you, please consider paying the higher end of the sliding scale. The more people who do so, the more we can offer these spaces to those who do not.
This support group is for anyone who works or has worked at non-profits and is experiencing burnout or negative effects to their mental health as a result. It is a space where you can meet others who are going through similar experiences and offer each other support. This is not therapy, nor is it a replacement for therapy.
We'll discuss topics like:
- White Supremacy and Non-Profits
- Self-Advocacy/Work Boundaries
- Work/Life Balance
- Workplace Community Building

Alex worked in non-profits for 13 years and continues to work through the long-term effects of toxic work environments.
