We know that the academic setting is a magical space for personal and professional growth, and self-study to occur. We also know that it is also a space where race, gender, and class-based traumas occur. If mental health programming is imperative for students on college campuses, it is crucial for Black and Brown students on predominantly white campuses.
My LLC (Pulse of Morning Work + Wellness) offers memberships, retreat, and mentorship for Black Women and Women of Color in Academia to come together and re-imagine our approaches to work in academia so that we can do our work *and* be well. All of the offerings through Pulse of Morning are built upon the value of paying our Guest Teachers and Speakers (many who are Black women and Women of Color) equitably, so as to not perpetuate the cycle of working below our worth.
Your donation here goes directly to: community memberships, retreat registration, and mentorship applications for folx who need financial assistance. It furthermore allows for a more healing and equitable organizational system.
Gratitude for your contribution.
May peace be with you,
Founder, Institute for Good Work
About The Institute for Good Work: The Good Work is a collective of academics and creatives of African descent who seek to heal their relationship to work in order to heal society. The collective creates and offers programming and content rooted in the mind-body connection and work-related research. Our programming aims to thwart institutional narratives and socialization tactics which encourage working for worthiness. It is our belief and experience that such narratives and tactics too often present further harm and reify trauma, especially for people of African descent. The collective is first focused on doing this work in the context of academia and non-profit settings, and we hope to one day effectuate shifts in how people of African descent relate to their work in all industries.
