With professional and personal boundaries blurred, and burnout on the rise, how can a holistic approach to health and wellness help alleviate stress and improve our work lives?

Join us on June 15 from 3-4:30 p.m. for Holistic Health: Women, Wellness & Leadership, a virtual event that explores the unique ways that women, especially those in leadership roles, can make a positive impact. Part of UMass Lowell’s Women's Leadership Conversations series, this free event will offer practical insights into:

  • How stress and burnout can affect overall health
  • Prioritizing healthy nutrition for physical and emotional health
  • Effective leadership strategies, challenges and opportunities in today’s world

Moderated by Anne Maglia, associate vice chancellor for research administration and integrity at UMass Lowell, this session will feature an interactive conversation with expert panelists, including:

  • Karoline Evans, assistant professor of management in the Manning School of Business and a research associate in the Center for Women and Work at UMass Lowell
