WCWI's 31st Annual Employee Wellbeing Conference

Restore Yourself. Reframe Wellbeing.

Empowering you with people-centered leadership skills.

Tuesday, September 21

Last Day to Register: Friday, September 3, 2021
As we emerge from experiences that have shaped us through challenge and change, a connection to our own wellbeing is more important than ever. A pause for restoration will support us as we grow as leaders, strategists, and change-makers. Through intentional restoration, we’ll seize moments of reflection, clarity, and action to reframe wellbeing for ourselves and our organizations.
This one-day in-person retreat is your opportunity to pause and restore yourself. We designed the retreat-styled conference with a variety of indoor and outdoor experiences to help us safely ease back into in-person events and revive our own wellbeing.
Together, with WCWI as your guide, we’ll begin the journey of reframing wellbeing for long-lasting organizational outcomes. We’ll explore WCWI’s Competencies – focusing on key skills for wellbeing strategists and people leaders – and empowering you in your people-centered leadership growth to uphold wellbeing as a foundational strategy at your organization.
We are excited to present an immersive retreat for our WCWI Community to gather in connection and learning in a way that we’ve never done before. We invite you to join us for WCWI’s 31st Annual Employee Wellbeing Conference to:
• Revive your own wellbeing
• Reinvigorate your path of growth toward people-centered leadership
• Reunite with old friends and build connections with new, and
• Renew your passion for impact as you begin to reframe wellbeing
This event is an approved provider for continuing education units for NWI, SHRM, and CHES.

"You organized a great agenda! I've been to a few virtual conferences since the pandemic started. The engagement you facilitated with attendees was by far the best participation from registrants I've seen. And I gained so much  additional info/resources from people sharing in the chat."
"Sharing my continued amazement about how well WCWI is doing everything related to this virtual conference. I am speaking at a number of virtual conferences this Fall and your organization, communication and thoughtfulness are far and above all the others."
"Amazing job in re-imagining what a virtual conference experience could be. None of the online conferences I've attended during the past 7 months come close to the quality of this event. You set the bar very, very high for other conferences in the industry. Many thanks thinking outside the box, creating a positive attendee experience and showing your love for the WCWI community."
"This conference was a class-act from the conference packet and journal to the amazing format of the virtual event. This was the best WCWI conference I have attended."

"The conference exceeded my expectations of a virtual conference. I still felt the "conference high" I feel every year I attend the conference!"
