Burnout

Burnout Prevention: the Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle

Dynamic speaker and bestselling author Emily Nagoski, PhD, will give a talk on her newly released book, Burnout, which explores the gap between societal expectations of women and what it’s really like to be a woman in today’s world. How can you “love your body” when every magazine cover has ten diet tips for becoming “your best self”? How do you “lean in” when you’re already operating at 110% and aren’t recognized for it? Nagoski explains what we’re up against with compassion—and offers concrete strategies to end the stress cycle and fight back. This session is geared toward staff and faculty.

Huxley/Evie office hours
