In recognition of AFP’s Ethics Awareness Month and Emotional Wellness Month and drawing from sound ethics, wellness, and IDEA practices, we’re bringing together professionals from all backgrounds and experiences for a panel discussion entitled, Harnessing Your Power in the Workplace.
If you are currently or have ever experienced toxicity in the workplace, this session is for you. A toxic situation is bad for you, your mission, and your donors. It leads to poor and reactive decision-making, staff turnover, anxiety and stress, and burnout which is bad for business and bad for ethical and IDEA-centered practices and behaviors.
To be able to achieve positive outcomes for your mission and be a happy and high-performing member of the team, you need self-awareness, a growth mindset, and a “toolbox” of wellness “tools”. You also need to assess your current situation and make decisions based on your needs and what’s best for you, and sometimes that means moving on and finding your next match that is better aligned with your values.
Join us for an honest and supportive conversation on finding your voice and power in any situation, so that you can be the best version of yourself and achieve the impact that you want and that your organization and community need.

KeKe Woods is a Yoga & Mindfulness Program Lead at Current Wellness. She creates spaces for all bodies regardless of ability, and all persons regardless of race, class, or religion to access the benefits of yoga. She has worked in multiple capacities adapting yoga in spaces where yoga has historically been inaccessible. KeKe believes that combining movement and meditation works to release negative energies of the body and mind while restoring the body to its own unique source of energy.
After years of working in the nonprofit sector as a Program Director, KeKe found herself grossly burned out, stressed, and riddled with anxiety and depression. She turned her trauma into triumph by utilizing yoga, meditation, journaling, and dreaming.
She openly shares her story of how yoga changed her life and helped her on her journey toward healing physical and mental ailments
