About the Resilience & Wellness Offerings

As health care professionals in New York, you have likely spent an incredibly intense year grappling with how to fight the double pandemics of COVID-19 and racism. As you imagine the future of your purpose and work, it is more important than ever that you seek out avenues for connection and learning that support you in pursuing the personal and professional development you need.

Rootwise Leadership believes that resilience and wellness programming cannot be one size fits all if it seeks to support real healing and change for all. As such, Rootwise Leadership has developed a series of focused coaching and affinity groups in addition to three interactive workshops intended to break down some of the myths about resilience and wellness in the work place while teaching some practical tools. As faculty of Montefiore Medical Center core clinical departments, we hope that you’ll find something in this programming that uniquely supports you over the course of 2021. 

Please register for all of the workshops and coaching groups that will most support you. We encourage you to attend all three workshops at some point throughout the year and to participate in the coaching groups you most need or identify with. The coaching groups offer an opportunity for application and integration of workshop content and/or deeper, more meaningful connections within the community of faculty members across departments.
