At a time when self-care and community care should be a top priority…it isn’t even on the radar for many of us.

That needs to change. NOW.

In just 75 minutes, I’ll show you how to more effectively make self and community care a part of everyday activities.

“This is truly the best webinar I have ever experienced. I don’t know why other webinars aren’t this interactive and engaging. Bravo! 


Dr. Obear did an excellent job focusing on the kinds of workshop tools that are effective with the appropriate support and care that these kinds of subjects warrant. Truly a fantastic job!”

– Dr. Leo Hwang, Dean of Humanities, Greenfield Community College

If you are out on the front lines every day to create greater equity, inclusion and social justice, it can feel like this journey is a marathon. And it is. We need to conserve our energy, plan for the LONG HAUL, and do everything we can to infuse self-care and community care into our daily life.

Let me show you where to start.

Do you know how important you are in your pursuit of social justice? You matter. You’ve got to take care of yourself. Self-care is not an option. It is a MUST.

You owe it to yourself and to your work as a change agent. If you’re thinking “I don’t have time” – think again. Infusing self-care can be simpler than you think…with substantial, lasting benefits.

“Doing work around inclusion and equity is hard. Dr. Obear uses humor and story telling to help people to understand. Everyone comes into professional development at different levels and she does an excellent job at not shaming or blaming but trying to help others have self-awareness and an appreciation for others.”

– Deanne W. Hurley
VP for Enrollment Management + Student Affairs, Ursuline College

Be real. Are you (or someone close to you) on the road to burnout? The time is NOW to start making self-care a part of your routine. Let me show you how.

It’s NOT selfish to take care of yourself. It’s foolish if you don’t practice self-care. Bring your colleagues and come find out how to infuse self-care strategies into your daily life.

    • Faculty, teachers, and principals
    • Change agents
    • Managers, chairs, and supervisors of teams
    • People who train and develop managers, supervisors, faculty & teachers
    • Members of Diversity Councils


Now more than ever, our world needs passionate, committed, effective change agents – activists who will persist and go the distance. Without self-care, our critical efforts will not be sustainable over time.


Yet, too many change agents and activists don’t fully recognize the true importance of the vital need for greater self-care and community care.
