Strengthening workforce resilience with trauma-informed best practice and “Move to the Front”

FEI is participating in a panel discussion on trauma-informed care in the workplace for the Greater Milwaukee Committee (GMC).

A civic organization that contributes to the cultural and economic resilience of Metropolitan Milwaukee, GMC is hosting a panel on Scaling Wellness in Milwaukee (SWIM), a collaboration within the human services, health care, educational, and criminal justice sectors focused on incorporating trauma-informed care into the workplace.

Moderated by Marquette University President and Co-founder of SWIM Mike Lovell, FEI Director of Product Management Ralph Metzner will join fellow panelists Frank Cumberbatch of Bader Philanthropies; Alicia Dupies of Capri Communities; Bill Harrigan of Harrigan Solutions; and Bill Krugler of Milwaukee JobsWork. The event will be held Monday, Sept. 9 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the University Club, 924 E. Wells St., Milwaukee.

The panel will explore current strategies for bringing a trauma-informed culture into Milwaukee’s workforce and look at how the corporate community can assist in promoting trauma-informed best practices. Metzner will discuss FEI’s work with “Move to the Front,” a stress management framework that incorporates the evolving field of neuroscience into an individual’s work and personal life. A keynote from Lovell and Tim Grove, senior consultant for SaintA, will precede the panel.
