What is the People’s Stage?
Every year, many Wisdom 2.0 participants ask how they can share their great work, insights, and presentations with our community. We are happy to announce the return of The People’s Stage to our 2018 annual conference.
The People’s Stage is a series of interactive breakout sessions submitted by registered conference attendees and selected by popular community vote. The People’s Stage is designed for more intimate, interactive sessions. Sessions are about 20 minutes long.

Title: How to Make Grief and Loss Suck Less in the Workplace
Description: The Dinner Party is a community of over 5,000 people and organizations in over 145 cities transforming life after loss from an isolating experience into one marked by community support, candid conversation, and forward movement. Buzzfeed named The Dinner Party the #1 thing to do when grieving.
A consistent theme heard around The Dinner Party table is how going back to work following a loss can be one of two polarities -- either work becomes an anchoring community, and a place for forward motion or, yet more often, going back to work is deeply challenging and overall compounds the feeling of isolation and overwhelm that can come with grief. We believe it can be the former in all workplaces.
In this interactive session, we’ll debunk taboos and myths about grief and loss, and share simple ways to “Be There” for your friends, colleagues, and employees in times of loss.
