Good Health & Good Leadership: A Panel Discussion hosted by Kaiser Permanente

December 5, 2019 - 12:00 AM Pacific Time


Date: December 5, 2019
Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Join us for a discussion and interactive experience to explore the connection between good health and good leadership and building a culture of well-being. Many people in leadership roles struggle to make health a priority and often put others first while sacrificing their own well-being. In fact, a recent study noted that only 23% of organizations said leaders are role models for prioritizing health and work/life balance*—but committing to a healthy workplace culture requires leaders to set the example. Our esteemed panel of industry leaders will share their personal experiences and self-care practices.


Open to women and men at any professional level. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.

5:30 pm Doors Open
