In Zee's Opening Keynote, The Mental Health Crisis: Time for Action, she will discuss one of the most challenging issues facing HR and benefits leaders today — how the COVID-19 pandemic drove a dramatic decline in employee well-being and why company leaders must step up. Drawing from her personal journey, Zee will expound on steps to take to help "destigmatize"
"The ongoing pandemic has had an outsized impact on employees' mental health, worsening an already-growing crisis that employers absolutely cannot ignore," said Kathryn Mayer, Conference Chair of HBLC. "This opening keynote session couldn't come at a more important time. We are thrilled to have Ginger speak to attendees about this vital topic, and having her speak firsthand about her personal struggles will make it all the more powerful."
Zee is an Emmy and Murrow Award-winning meteorologist and the author of the New York Times best-selling memoir Natural Disaster: I Cover Them, I am One, where she opens up about her own significant mental health issues that went undiagnosed until she entered inpatient therapy. She currently covers the nation's weather headlines on Good Morning America and across all ABC News broadcasts and digital platforms.
In addition to this highly anticipated Keynote, HBLC will feature more than 40 sessions in seven different learning tracks including Boosting Employee Financial Health, Hot Benefits to Attract & Retain Talent, Improving Mental Health, Managing Remote Workers, Rethinking Healthcare, Staying Compliant, and Tech Solutions That Work. The in-person event will also feature a robust Expo Hall where HR, benefits and wellness leaders can discover the most cutting-edge products and solutions on the market.
