I’m Good: A Conversation About Mental Health

Thu, Nov 11, 2021, 6:00 PM CST

What’s your most common response when a colleague, friend or relative asks “how are you?” It’s usually “I’m good,” even if you’re not, right? We’re here to unpack that.

Join us for the 10th Annual Women’s Leadership Panel this November, titled “I’m Good: A Conversation About Mental Health.” This virtual event will facilitate conversations to help empower us to put our mental health first in our personal, professional, and community lives.

The Women’s Leadership Panel is one of Ad 2’s signature events and draws hundreds of people who are eager to learn and be inspired by women empowerment.

This year’s theme is a timely and important topic for our advertising industry to address. The pandemic changed the way we work and made us more aware of how it impacts our mental health. During this event, we’ll dive into topics such as hustle culture, burnout, setting boundaries, active communication, self-care, knowing your worth, and the great resignation.
