2020 - 2024
Beginning with an initial grant in 2020 and followed by renewal support in 2022, Ocean Conservancy is using Foundation support to build on the commitment of top leadership and deep enthusiasm among staff teams to expand its contemplative practice training. Ocean Conservancy is offering learning series/training for staff to introduce mindfulness practices to improve the wellbeing of staff and the health of the organization overall, specifically to improve focus and productivity, reduce stress and conflict, increase adaptability and emotional intelligence, and contribute to better communication in the workplace. A foundation of sustained practice will be built through supplemental refresher sessions and/or targeted team training over the two years. The project will also provide staff with continued access to Headspace.
