White Supremacy and Burnout: Rest as a Form of Resistance in the Nonprofit Sector with Paul Johnson and Rochelle Younan-Montgomery

White Supremacy and Burnout: Rest as a Form of Resistance in the Nonprofit Sector with Paul Johnson and Rochelle Younan-Montgomery

It can be stressful to work in the nonprofit sector; working grueling hours for little pay. You care deeply about the cause and it's the sacrifice you chose to make. Burnout seems inevitable. But does it really have to be this way?

Although rarely acknowledged, this work culture has been shaped by white supremacy and capitalism. In this workshop, we will explore the common problem of burnout within the nonprofit sector and how white supremacy culture has created an unsustainable approach to social change.

We will equip you with strategies for combating white supremacy culture both individually and systemically. We are excited to share how a sense of well-being provides sustained engagement in the work and becomes a powerful act of resistance.

 

Paul Johnson currently serves as co-chair of the Governance Committee on the YNPN-TC Board of Directors. He is also the founder of Proactivism, a coaching and consulting firm that helps activists and nonprofit professionals do social change work from a place of balance, mindfulness, and resilience. He believes that it is not only possible, but it is necessary for change-makers to manage stress and prevent burnout so that they can effectively and sustainably do this hard work for years to come. He lives in South Minneapolis with his partner, Bailey, their pets--Curry and Pita--and a little one on the way! 

Rochelle Younan-Montgomery is the founder of Holistic Workplace Inclusion, an independent consulting firm specializing in intercultural development, anti-racism training and empathy-building. Rochelle grew up in Minnesota; her father immigrated from Egypt. She developed a deep passion for cross-cultural immersion from a young age, and has since lived and traveled extensively around the globe. A seasoned professional, Rochelle's background spans community organizing, student leadership development and equitable recruitment in higher education. She most recently served as the Director of College Access with College Possible and is a Qualified Administrator of the IDI. She lives in South Minneapolis with her partner David, daughter Maia and quirky dog Olive.
