Signature Series: Grief in the Workplace by PAUSE Panel & Alica Forneret

Grief in the Workplace

Examining identity, support needs, and community in culturally-relevant ways in the workplace

A special presentation for Hospice Professionals, Clergy, Law Enforcement, First Responders, Victim’s Advocates, Therapists/Counselors, Volunteers, Companions, Death Doulas, Death Care Professionals, including Administrative and Leadership Professionals in these settings.

In this presentation for professionals, PAUSE will cover how workplaces can better support their employees who are People of Color navigating death, dying, and grief. Together, we will explore how race and culture can influence the type of support workplaces can offer to their employees. Attendees should be prepared to engage in individual exercises to examine their own identity and how it’s impacted their personal grief experience in the workplace, as well as small group work and large group discussions to center storytelling and resourcing from community. Attendees will walk away with practical ideas for expanding their approach to making culturally-relevant referrals outside of the typical bereavement response, as well as a customized list of grief and end-of-life resources by and for People of Color.

Topics covered:
• How grief shows up in the workplace
• Ways to expand an existing bereavement response beyond making policy updates
• “Whole person care” and the constellation of existing grief and end-of-life support within POC communities
• Grief and other lived experiences tied to identity/race (cultural bereavement, collective grief, etc.)
• Seeking out and making culturally-relevant referrals to honor your personal limits as a manager or leader
