Today, the National Taskforce on Lawyer Well-Being is announcing the first annual Lawyer Well-Being Week which will be held May 4-8, 2020. This initiative is a joint effort of the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being, the American Bar Association (ABA) Law Practice Division and its Attorney Well-Being Committee, and the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Program’s (CoLAP) Well-Being Committee. Principal of RB Consulting, Renee Branson is a proud member of the ABA Well-Being Committee and invites you to join her in being a lawyer well-being champion. Well-being is an institution-wide responsibility. Getting started can feel overwhelming, so we are here to help! Together, we can work to create a better environment for colleagues, clients, and organizations.
On the Lawyer Well-Being Week website, you’ll find more information and ideas for participating. To get your thinking started, here is a list of 46 Activity Ideas for getting involved. Once you decide how your organization will participate, please get in touch with Renee by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to us on our contact page. We will forward the information to the Lawyer Well-Being Week leaders who may highlight your planned activities on the Well-Being Champions page to promote your good work and give others ideas for participation. Finally, we’d be grateful if you would consider spreading the word and encouraging participation profession-wide. To do so, you’ll find a messaging toolkit on the website under the Awareness Messaging tab.
RB Consulting will be providing programming during the Week, so follow us on Twitter @resilientbounty and subscribe to our blog for articles, activities, and updates!
