Engaging in anti-human trafficking work is daunting and draining. Some of the trauma is unavoidable, but we can create organizations that encourage healing and thriving by creating structures for success in our organizations. Trauma informed organization have policies and procedures that protect both the organization and the staff; they consider how to invest in their Lived Experience Experts; they are integrous in how they publicly discuss the issue of human trafficking; and they are led by humble leaders.

Refresh your reason for engaging in this work. This session will be both encouraging and challenging as Chris shares lessons learned from working in leadership with two organizations and from conversations over the past seven years with lived experience experts on the issue of how organizations can do this better.
