Join Wellness@CGIAR for How to be a Mental Health Ally – January 26, 2022

If the last year and a half has taught us anything, it’s that we need strong communities committed to advocating and supporting one another – our workplace is no exception.

All of us have been affected by the pandemic and it has raised awareness around the importance of mental health and its implications. However, the topic of mental health is still stigmatized and uncomfortable to discuss.

Join the Wellness@CGIAR Employee Resource Group on January 26th, 2022 for How to be a Mental Health Ally, an online workshop designed to equip you with mental health allyship tools that support your coworkers in public and private settings. The event is designed for everyone, regardless of your role, level, or identity.

Date: January 26, 2022

Session 1: 9:00 – 10:00 AM UTC (French translation available) 


Session 2: 3:00 – 4:00 PM UTC (Spanish translation available) 


When we all practice allyship, we can create an open, inclusive, and safe environment that allows everyone to bring their whole selves to work.
