Wellness has a diversity issue. We see it in magazines. We see it in yoga studios. We see it in Whole Foods. Wellness looks white. How do we reckon with a booming wellness industry that is almost exclusively white while the wellbeing of black, brown and indigenous folks suffer at disproportionate rates. Join us for a powerful discussion about equity and inclusion in wellness that tackles the following questions:

What is the impact of whiteness on our wellness communities?
How are we perpetuating a culture of exclusion in wellness?
What does it look like to engage beyond donating or serving excluded communities?
How do we create a culture of radical inclusion and equity?
