  • Celebrate women’s achievements
  • Raise awareness about women’s equality

The Antidote to Burnout is Unicorn Space – Workshop with Bestselling Author Eve Rodsky

Wednesday, March 30th | 9AM ET

If we want to avoid burning out, opting out, and continuing to battle with mental health struggles like anxiety, chronic fatigue and depression, we each must set true boundaries at work and at home so that we can cultivate our curiosities, interests and passions, and remember who we are apart from our jobs and separate from the family roles that can define us. Eve Rodsky calls this brand of creative expression-Unicorn Space-and explains why creating time for it is not optional, but essential to our sense of self, our physical and mental well-being, the health of our partnerships, and our ability to model what a full and meaningful life looks like to our children, friends, colleagues, and communities. Join Eve to learn more about the antidote to burnout.
