United Voices Webinars

Conversations for local change

United Voices is our way of bringing together local experts to have meaningful conversations about tough issues Waterloo Region is facing. This series aims to both address the issues and give us a collective space to reimagine a resilient and united community.

Unstuck: Moving forward in Stressful Times

STUCK is a word that many of us can relate to this year: Stuck in the house, stuck in fear/boredom/exhaustion or all three, stuck with our immediate families being our only in-person companions, stuck in a constant news-cycle of catastrophe, stuck in constant fight-flight-or-freeze responses. In this workshop, Carizon ambassadors Kate McAllister and Megan Svarich-Knights will discuss the individual and collective pain of being stuck and introduce strategies for moving forward. Take charge of your stuckness, and let it go.
