Post-election resources for managers and leaders

Hi friends,

What a whirlwind these last few days (and weeks and months) have been.

For those of you who are grieving,
For those of you who are cautiously optimistic,
For those of you who are angry,
For those of you who are relieved,
For those of you who are disappointed,
For those of you who are celebrating,
For those of you who are scared,
For those of you who are (hoping to be) hopeful,
For those of you who are tired,
For those of you who are unsurprised,
For those of you who are some or all of these at the same time…

We see you. We’re here for you. We hope you’ll take a moment to feel all your feelings.

To those of you who have been working tirelessly—to defend democracy, to fight climate catastrophe, for schools where all children can thrive, towards liberation for Black and brown people, and so much more… Thank you.

We know our work isn’t done, but we hope you’ll take a moment to reflect on what brought you to your work and celebrate what you’ve accomplished.

The events of this election season and the obstacles of this year have made the simple act of showing up more challenging, especially if you’re Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, queer, trans, non-binary, a caregiver, an essential worker, a sex worker, undocumented, a migrant, a refugee, sick, chronically ill, living with disabilities, poor, working-class, or any combination of these things.

Still, you are here. And you’re not doing this alone. We hope you’ll take a moment to take stock of your community—your supporters, co-conspirators, hype people, and stakeholders. The people that you show up for and those who show up for you.

We’re here for you, and we will keep showing up for you. Here’s what we have to offer today: a round-up of resources to help you (and your staff) get through this time with as much grace as possible.
