Kate Burke Gibbs, Greenleaf Training Unit Manager and Practitioner, will be the guest speaker at the School of International Service (SIS) at American University in Washington, D.C. in November. She will be speaking to the graduate students in “Ethics and Social Enterprise” about the positive impact of mindfulness in our business practices and studies. Stress inhibits our ability to make clear decisions, potentially causing poor ethical choices that can be detrimental to our lives as students or professionals. The good news is that mitigating or managing stress through mindfulness or other wellbeing techniques can lessen the negative effects of stress on the brain. Kate’s lecture on the ethics of mindfulness will be held on November 11, 2017.
Greenleaf staff are known for their depth of knowledge in the fields of resilience, wellbeing and trauma. They have shared their experience with university students at Harvard University, Georgetown University and American University, among others.
