Women in IT - Leadership Series: Wellness, Self-Care, and Stress Management

Pitt IT offers a monthly series for those who identify as women who work in—or plan to work in—technology at the University of Pittsburgh. Join us on the 2nd Wednesday of each month to learn and network to enhance your career at Pitt. 

Join us in August for an interactive conversation with Dr. Ellen Burts-Cooper, on "Wellness, Self-Care, and Stress Management".

Stress is a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. It’s the body’s natural reaction to sudden changes or challenges. While our bodies are equipped to handle small doses of stress, we do not have the ability to schedule when these challenges will arise. We can, however, work to prevent stress and manage how we handle the long-term stresses brought upon us to reduce the physical consequences that stress can have on our health. In this session, we will:

  • Monitor and measure stress levels in the workplace
  • Review the 7 stress factors that impact our productively in the workplace
  • Discuss the most common stress symptoms
  • Identify strategies to manage workplace stress and prevent burnout 
  • Learn the 4 key resiliency areas and form new habits in each

All participants will have the option to take an online wellness assessment after the session.

Dr. Ellen Burts-Cooper is the senior managing partner of Improve Consulting and Training Group, a firm that provides personal and professional development training, coaching, and consultation. Ellen works across numerous industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, financial services, education, government, and not-for-profit. She is on faculty at Case Western Reserve University in the Weatherhead Executive Education Program and The Institute for Management Studies (IMS). She is the author of several books and is a member of the Private Directors Association and the National Wellness Institute.

Wednesday, August 10 at 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
