Supporting frontline and essential workers: The importance of decent work during a crisis

ONN and Imagine Canada are pleased to present a series of free webinars to support nonprofits and charities.

From physical distancing to managing emotional and physical stress, frontline and essential workers are facing increasing challenges as they support communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has raised the curtain on how these workers and their work are under-valued. How can we support these workers during and after the crisis? By implementing and advocating for decent work.

During this interactive panel discussion you will:

  • Apply lessons from international humanitarian organizations to learn how to lead staff on the frontlines during the crisis and beyond

  • Hear examples of how local nonprofits are supporting their staff through decent work initiatives such as mental health supports

  • Discuss ways organizations can use a network approach to supporting frontline and essential staff

  • Learn why using a gender lens is essential for all supports

  • Participate in a live question and answer period with local and international experts

Everyone is welcome to join this free webinar. All registered participants and those on the waiting list will receive a recording of the webinar and slide deck within one week of the event.
