EventWell, the social enterprise driving tangible change in the mental health and wellbeing of the event industry, is delighted to announce that EIA (Event Industry Alliance – which encompasses ESSA, AEV and AEO) is the latest industry association to join the line-up of EventWell community partners.
Commenting on the collaboration, Alden Arnold, AEV Project Manager, said “we are excited to partner with mental wellbeing leaders EventWell at this crucial time, joining the growing list of partner organisations in supporting the many vital initiatives, led by EventWell CEO Helen Moon, that bring optimal mental wellbeing to everyone in our industry. Numerous association working groups have been working together to help members support their teams with the provision of a range of materials on the associations’ websites. The groups created a well-being tool kit, ‘heads up’, which was launched to members in March 2020 to provide resources – the kit is continually being enhanced as the industry navigates the pandemic. This resource was made open to public access in April 2021 so as to allow non-members to access the support services to help us all get through these challenging times. EIA very much sees the partnership with EventWell as enhancing and growing this support and will continue to help both our members and the broader industry.”
EventWell and EIA look forward to partnering on a number of key membership events and initiatives that will raise awareness of, and open up conversations on, mental health awareness centred on EventWell’s key values of empathy, culture and self-care, and at a time when mental health and wellbeing has never been more important.
Helen Moon, EventWell CEO & Founder said “I am delighted to be working in partnership with the EIA, working together to support their members and community, and at a time when the event industry needs collaborations and relationships like this more than ever.”
Sarah Netherway, Head of Strategic Partnerships at EventWell “This partnership between EIA and EventWell further-demonstrates the importance of mental health and wellness within the events industry and supports the ongoing advocacy and educational work of EventWell. Were excited to be working together and look forward to positively impacting many more event professionals in 2021.”
