Oshun Workplace Wellbeing, the startup aiming to revolutionise the face of the wellness industry launches free Wellbeing Day with free sessions focusing on diversity, inclusion, confidence and joy

Oshun-Main-Logo-Colour-RGBA new wellbeing startup is urging employers to make workplace wellbeing more inclusive in order to tackle poor mental health among the workforce.

Oshun Workplace Wellbeing, founded by Leanne Evans and Sarah Watts, has called on UK companies to ensure that workplace wellbeing initiatives are delivered by diverse wellness professionals to make all employees feel included and tackle poor mental health at work.

Following on from World Mental Health Day and to highlight Black History Month, Oshun is hosting a Wellbeing Day on 12 October, and will be offering free sessions to employers and employees across the country.

The Wellbeing Day is part of Oshun’s core mission to revolutionise the face of the wellness industry, changing the stereotypes associated with wellness and making it more inclusive and accessible for everyone.

20_Sarah & Leanne _Claudia Leisinger.Sarah Watts and Leanne Evans explain: “While many companies have great wellbeing initiatives, we noticed that some of the professionals delivering sessions were not diverse, making it harder for all employees to feel included.

“It’s no secret that experiences of racism, microaggression and inequalities can have a detrimental effect on people’s mental health, yet throughout all this they are expected to show up at their best at work. Our vision is to make mental health and wellbeing as inclusive as possible so that everyone can feel included and bring their whole self to work.

“That’s why we’ve picked all our sessions for our free Wellbeing Day with this in mind. Not only do we have sessions focusing on inclusion and diversity, but they are also delivered by a host of diverse wellness practitioners. From ‘how to make your workforce diverse’ for leaders, to an inclusive yoga session and much more. There’s something for everyone and we hope that this will encourage more people to get on board making their mental health a priority.”

Oshun’s Wellbeing Day will include a range of free sessions such as Inclusive Sunrise Yoga for all body shapes, Mindful Nutrition on a Budget and Five ways to make your workplace more inclusive if you don’t know where to start. If you’d like to attend one of these, or the other fab Oshun’s Wellbeing Day sessions on offer, simply register online to book your place!

And workplace wellbeing will be very much an integral part of our upcoming hybrid Work: In Progress event. We’d love you to join us!
