2021 LSFN Signature Event | Wellness 360: Supporting Staff Wellness and Building Back Better
Please join us for our 2021 Signature Event, where we will bring together leaders from the public interest sector to share insights and observations about how legal aid staff are impacted by their work, how this impact can be mitigated, and how the legal services community can support staff wellness
Time & Location
Sep 23, 2021, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM PDT
Annually the LSFN Signature Event brings together over a hundred individuals from the funder, academic, government and legal services fields who are passionate about improving access to justice. This year we will bring together several leaders from the public interest sector to share insights and observations regarding how to best support staff from the negative affects of vicarious trauma, combat compassion fatigue, and prevent burnout.
Ensuring equitable access to justice for our most vulnerable communities has never been 'easy work', it takes personal sacrifice, compassion, empathy, and the courage to fight for those who are unable. Through this program, we hope the shed light on how legal aid attorneys are affected by their work, provide practices to mitigate those affects, and discuss ways we can reframe our work in an effort to build back better
We hope that you'll join us for our 2021 Signature Event, where we'll celebrate our communities' had-fought accomplishments, share what we've learned along the way, and ready ourselves for the road ahead.
This event is purposely open to a wide community, including legal service funders, NGOs, CBOs, law students, attorneys, judges, court staff, and others interested in civil legal aid.
There is no charge to attend.
