IMPACT: SOCIAL

Preventing burnout and promoting the wellbeing of social justice leaders.

How have you impacted your community?

I am the Founder and CEO of Circles International, a consulting group that supports social justice leaders and organizations to build resilience, prevent burnout, and sustain their impact.

During my previous career in social work and global health, I witnessed high rates of stress, fatigue, and burnout, and began to focus my energy on cultivating wellbeing and resilience circles for social justice leaders. Circles International began as a single circle of social justice leaders and now is a global community committed to building the movement for emotional health.

“I believe that investing in the resilience and wellbeing of social justice leaders is a critical component to create a more just, loving world.”
