On October 11, 2022, Let's Get Uncomfortable, a volunteer-led organization dedicated to addressing difficult topics in Canada's travel industry, will host Burnout: Confronting the Tourism Industry's Mental Health Crisis

This virtual, three-part event series facilitated by LGU’s Shalene Dudley and Maria Ines will explore the challenges being faced by tourism professionals juggling the survival of their careers and the quality of their mental health and how industry leaders can step up to help.

With events taking place in Fall 2022, the "Burnout" mental health series will feature conversations with mental health professionals, advocates for emotional safety in the workplace, and tourism professionals, examining what it takes to keep your business, career - and your wellbeing - afloat in this ever-evolving industry. 

The first event, on Tuesday, October 11, 2022 at 10 a.m. ET, will see Shalene speak with Hassel Aviles, co-founder and executive director of hospitality non-profit global leader in mental health advocacy, Not 9 to 5, about the current structures of mental health support that exist within the tourism industry, where the gaps are - and how to go about filling them. 

Burnout: An Industry in Crisis with Shalene Dudley & Hassel Aviles, Not 9 to 5, takes place on Tuesday, October 11, 2022 from 10-11:30 a.m. EST. Tickets are available here
