Understanding Intergenerational Trauma & Its Impact in the Workplace

Join Change Catalyst Founder & CEO Melinda Briana Epler with Michael Thomas, Shareholder at Ogletree Deakins to discuss Intergenerational Trauma & Its Impact in the Workplace.

We’ll discuss the deep intergenerational trauma experienced by historically marginalized groups that is passed from generation to generation. We’ll explore how that can show up physically, emotionally and spiritually; what some triggers are; how we can recognize and heal these in ourselves; and how we can collectively recognize and correct continued trauma and make space for healing.
