Hoang Edullantes - Community Planner and Yoga facilitator

What could happen if we put health at the center of strategies? The Regenerate Inside Out Workshop is a JEDI’s Collective initiative that aims to use the Placemaking and Design Thinking approach to foster a wellness culture building. The 90-minute workshop will be facilitated by Hoang Edullantes and Jenifer Batista. It will provide an opportunity for our community to connect and think about solutions regarding mental and emotional health challenges in our workspace. The goal is to reflect and activate collective intelligence toward solutions that apply to our environment. We will also lean up Tricia Hersey’s Rest is Resistance framework to ground us in the fundamental recognition that barriers to rest, wellness and belonging are inextricably linked to the demands of capitalism and white supremacy.

A light dinner will be catered by La Cocinero. Attendees are invited to share fellowship over food and beverages to celebrate this opportunity to create a better workplace!

Please RSVP
