​Mental Well-Being: Brewing Up the Conversation | Master Brewers Webinar​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Broadcast Date: March 16th, 2021​

Webinar Summary

Wow, has it been a year or what?!?! How are you feeling? The pandemic has done a number on our emotional well-​being and workplace safety. But thanks to the pandemic, it has highlighted what has always been there, a need to pay attention to and start discussing the importance of mental and emotional well-being. Mental and emotional well-being not only improves our physical safety in the brewery but also allows us to see and hold space for those around us, resulting in a much more emotionally safe place as well. Because let's be honest, we spend A LOT of time at work.

With this webinar, we want to start the discussion, which is always ongoing, but especially being 1 year after the COVID lockdown. This is the first of a multi-part series, so the results of this conversation will really allow us to provide more informative webinars and resources in the future!

Topics to be Covered:

  • What is Emotional/Mental Well-Being
  • How does it impact us in the brewery world?
  • How does having emotional language and the use of identifying our emotions help?
