014 - Demystifying Mental Health x The Burden of Being Black Diversity Alliance Talks

    • Business

This week we are joined by Ngzoi Weller, Managing Director of Aurora Wellness.

With organisations beginning to understand tackling mental health takes more than a couple of well-being strategies such as yoga or a gym membership, what can businesses and organisations do better with regards to supporting their people during times of crisis?

In part one we discuss the nuances of mental health in the workplace and how we classify well-being and wellness.

In part two we talk about the mental health of black and brown people.  Sharing our lived experiences of the “hidden harms”, the impact of discrimination, the burden of POC needing to “whitewash” themselves to be accepted in the workplace and the realities of hitting the “brown ceiling”.

Ngozi Weller is a qualified management training consultant and mental health first aider who equips HR and people managers with the tools to improve employee wellbeing in the workplace.
