October 12| 3:00-4:30 Change the Narrative Talks
WCWI's Change the Narrative Talks are a new Conference experience for 2022. The Change the Narrative Talks will highlight individuals who have ideas or stories that describe boldness, bravery, and are beyond the usual limits of conventional thinking and action for employee wellbeing. They will also expand upon the mindset of WCWI's Guiding Principles in action.
WCWI believes that as a field, we must reframe wellbeing through a wider and deeper lens and that will contribute to employee wellbeing being valued as a fundamental strategy and business priority for all organizations. This session makes space for stories, experiences, and values that exemplify what really matters most. WCWI’s Change the Narrative Talks showcase the leading voices of WCWI’s members, leaders, and industry experts.
This high-energy session will begin with networking, refreshments, music, and building connections with your WCWI membership community!
We gratefully acknowledge our Networking Sponsor:

The Concept Illustrator
I interviewed for my “dream job” … 24 hours later I was in UW’s Madison’s trauma unit with gunshot wounds, believing my chances of working there were long gone. Six months later, about to start that dream job, (which was no small miracle itself!) I wondered if I would be able to manage the often-debilitating symptoms of my PTSD diagnosis as I began my new role. This talk will focus on two truths that made it possible for me to be well, work well and live well as a member of that team despite the obstacles I faced.
