Gathering of Kindness 2022 was all about CONNECTIONS. We explored creativity, change, collaboration and courage – all in the name of a kinder healthcare system for all.
It's not too late to access recordings of ALL online sessions!
For a full listing of all sessions, please consult the Program Summary.
“We know that healthcare staff desperately need a break from the stress, negativity and worry of these times. We hear that you also want to feel empowered to create positive change at work.
We have designed a program of creative, uplifting and important conversations, offerings and tools to reconnect with yourself, like-minded colleagues, and with joy, meaning and positive action in your work.
Let us celebrate and help sustain you. Let us work together to co-create a kinder and more sustainable healthcare system for all."

This event is a welcoming space for all and is child friendly.
Pay It Forward - A Seat at the Table
The Gathering of Kindness pay-it-forward initiative, A Seat at the Table, helps make our offerings accessible to those who can’t afford to purchase a ticket. Ticket buyers have the option to donate towards the cost of a stranger’s ticket. You won’t know who you’ve helped, but your donation will go directly to allowing someone else to access this great event.
Need a seat at the table? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and email address, which event you’re interested in, and whether you would like one or two tickets. Your information will never be shared or made public. If we can offer you a seat, we’ll notify you by email within a week of the event.
