Self-care in the Museum Workplace

Category: On-Demand Programs

All too often, bright, talented people burn out and leave museum work because of the cumulative effects of toxic stress. How can the practice of self-care reduce this damage and help people stay in a profession they love?  This webinar, hosted by Blackbaud, explores how museum workers can employ self-care to sustain physical and mental health, and how museums can foster self-care in the workplace and create a less stressful work environment.

Based on the Center for the Future of Museum’s forecasting report TrendsWatch 2019, available for download here.
