Empathy Empowers: Mental health awareness in tech

Presented by

Adam Sockel

About this talk

The last two years have brought a massive amount of change across all aspects of the tech industry—and our mental health has been affected. Working in a pandemic isn’t easy, especially when it’s in combination with new remote work environments that can make people feel more isolated and disconnected from their teams. Tech leaders need to prioritise the mental health of their people, or their wellbeing and effectiveness will suffer. Join Pluralsight and industry leaders as we discuss the current state of mental health in tech. You’ll learn: Best practices from tech industry experts How orgs and leaders have adjusted their approach to the mental wellbeing of their teams Using data to find solutions for the less traceable aspects of mental health How to create safe spaces for mental health discussions And more... This is a really important topic that’s worth getting a handle on as soon as possible - because it’s not going to diminish in importance anytime soon. Committed to being part of the change, Pluralsight will be donating $1 for every attendee to Pieta House. Their vision is “a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.” You can learn more about the work they do here: www.pieta.ie
