Feedback form is now closed.
As an industry, tech is now having much more open conversations about topics beyond bits and bytes: creating psychological safety, promoting diversity and inclusion, and addressing burnout. Underlying each of these topics is a conversation that is much more difficult to have; how can our industry and our workplaces best support our employees’ mental health?

Drawing on her personal experience and sharing the (anonymized) stories of other technologists, Leslie Hawthorn will share her own story of creating a successful career while battling chronic depression. Her talk will focus on developing processes in your workplace that support employee mental health and how management can create an inclusive culture that accommodates those who require mental health care. Her goal is to have everyone leave better equipped to care for their employees, co-workers, teammates, and fellow humans’ greatest asset: their minds.
