"CAA Foundation, Thrive Global & Harvard T.H. Chan School Of Public Health Launch #FirstRespondersFirst Initiative"

Below is an article originally written by Patrick Hipes, Executive Managing Editor at Deadline, and published on March 23, 2020. PowerToFly Partner Thrive Global is mentioned in this article. Go to Thrive Global's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Thrive Global and the CAA Foundation are launching #FirstRespondersFirst, an initiative to provide first responder health care workers with resources as they serve on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.

Donations to #FirstRespondersFirst will provide essential supplies and equipment including gowns, gloves, and masks for protecting health care workers and their patients. The workforce ranges from minimum-wage hourly workers in home-care settings to social workers, nurses, physicians, and others.

Via Thrive Global's behavior change platform, #FirstRespondersFirst will also deliver access to online workshops, virtual training, coaching, and content, all of which aim to help improve the physical and mental well-being that focuses on sleep, movement, nutrition, stress management, and relationships with colleagues.

The #FirstRespondersFirst program will also tap into CAA's resources and relationships with cultural influencers, helping to raise awareness.

"This workforce must prioritize self-care," CAA president Richard Lovett said. "Harvard's science and evidence-based work, combined with Thrive Global's tools, will now be easily accessible through #FirstRespondersFirst. If you are a healthcare worker or love a healthcare worker, please use these resources. Our front-line healthcare professionals need the support of everyone in this country. Our goal is that #FirstRespondersFirst becomes the destination for health care workers and those who wish to support these heroes."

How To Handle Conversations on Race with Your Non-Black Coworkers

I sat in front of my CEO to discuss several complaints of racism. I was new to my role as a Culture Director. I was nervous about his reaction to the complaints. But I also knew he strongly supported developing this new department; I knew that he would take the right steps. So I was shocked when I heard him say sheepishly, "I don't know, Noelle...all of this stuff about racism. I just don't see it. I don't even see color. I'm pretty much color blind."
