Avoiding Burnout in Your Profession

  • East Bay Community Space 507 55th Street Oakland, CA, 94609 United States (map)

Women are burning the fuck out in their professions. It's some diabolical shit. It's like the gravity for women is set to 10 times stronger. It takes way more effort to move through our work lives. And we get called weak or fragile or delicate. That's some bullshit.

There are known remedies to help you avoid burn out. The first step is knowing what you're up against. The second step is creating structural support systems that are specific to you.

Let's figure it out together. Just coming to the workshop is already a supportive intervention you're taking on your own behalf. Spending an evening with a group of women who want you to be held and cared for while you succeed in life... is fucking amazing. I'm just saying. 

This workshop is a support group for women. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” where trans women, genderqueer and non-binary femmes, and folks who are femme of center are welcome.

The cost of the workshop is $40. Please buy tickets in advance to help us know how many women to expect. And yes you can also pay at the door. Need based scholarships are available, please ask!
