With ubiquitous technology and a 24/7 work culture, many of us get burned out or find it difficult to maintain balance in our lives. Mindfulness has emerged as a powerful tool for well-being and productivity. In addition, recent research has shown that it can reduce unconscious bias. Please join the HBA New England Women in Science and Fit to Lead
joint event to learn from a leading neuroscientist, how mindfulness practice can help re-wire your brain. As a group, we will practice mindfulness techniques together through seated yoga and meditation. Afterwards, a panel of leaders from the healthcare industry will share how mindfulness has positively influenced their careers and helped them overcome hidden biases.
