About The Institute for Good Work:
The Institute for Good Work is a collective of academics and creatives of African descent who seek to heal their relationship to work in order to heal society. The collective creates and offers programming and content rooted in the mind-body connection and work-related research. Their programming aims to thwart institutional narratives and socialization tactics which encourage working for worthiness. It is their belief and experience that such narratives and tactics too often present further harm and reify trauma, especially for people of African descent. The collective is first focused on doing this work in the context of academia and non-profit settings, and they hope to one day effectuate shifts in how people of African descent relate to their work in allindustries.
This series is a safe space for those who identify as persons of color who have past experience as an undergraduate, graduate student, staff, faculty member, etc. in college settings. Thank you for honoring our intentions to create and maintain a safe space.
