The Global Connections for Women Foundation (GC4W) celebrates the Age of Wellness. In the latest McCann Health‘s Wellness report states, “the Age of Wellness is upon us, a concept so rich with possibility that it is shifting from a perceived luxury to being considered a fundamental human right. 86% of people believe they have the power to change their own level of wellness.” However, more investment in wellness is needed to support workplace mental health initiatives and external self-care practices.

To amplify the need to continue the momentum of mental health awareness month and the need to embrace the Age of Wellness, the GC4W Circle Network proudly presents the “GC4W Circle Wellness Retreat x Summit” with a focus on work, life, balance in our stride to find serenity in a post-pandemic world, and as we discover new wellness pathways in a whole new world. This event is also a welcomed reminder that “wellness” should be an advent part of our everyday conversations at work, at home, and in life.

We invite you to join us as we move towards advancing our collective knowledge on what we must do to thrive, be well, and succeed in a whole new world. Register to attend the GC4W Wellness Retreat x Summit for exclusive access to leading industry practitioners, health experts, and special guests to discover new wellness pathways in a post-pandemic era.
