On June 28, Equity in Architecture, in collaboration with NOMAtlanta, hosted Architecture + Burnout. The groups coordinated the event to address the mental issues among the profession as professionals are transitioning back to the office, and workload is at an all-time high.
Meg Sanchez of UpSwing Health Coaching challenged the notion of self-sacrifice as a prerequisite for success and led the group in coping exercises to address stress and burnout. Amy Stone facilitated a group discussion leading participants to create actionable items that individuals, firms, and organizations can implement to address the well-being of the professionals that make up the profession.
Thank you to Namrata Dani, Heather Potts, Meg Sanchez, Nicole Seekely, Amy Stone, Taylor Upton, and AiLien Vuong for their hard work in coordinating a successful event!
