This year, the Institute for Well-Being in Law (IWIL) is introducing an “After Party” during the week of May 17th for well-being leaders.
IWIL has lined up a week to recognize and empower all of the well-being coordinators who are working hard within organizations to improve well-being in the legal profession, now that Well-Being Week in Law, which is recognized throughout the first week each May, has wrapped up this year. If you’re responsible for building a well-being program for a law firm or other type of legal employer, you won’t want to miss the After Party that’s tailored to you.
Each day of the week of May 17, IWIL will provide programming focused on organizational practices that science has shown have a substantial impact on workplace well-being. To avoid exacerbating everyone’s growing Zoom fatigue, they’re offering a mix of ways to participate–e.g., readings, resources, pre-recorded videos, and a few live webinars.
View the lineup resources and programs — and subscribe to updates — here on the IWIL website, which will focus on daily topics following the schedule below:
