This annual gathering of the Galaxy community includes training, talks, posters, demos, Birds of a Feather meetups, and many other opportunities for collaboration and networking.

BOF: Galaxy Well-being and Mental Health Project

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Currently, there are different challenges faced in open-source communities that play a role in overall mental health and well-being such as burnout, conflict, accommodating different work styles and expectations, working in different time zones, lack of representation and inclusion for people coming from diverse backgrounds or marginalized groups, among other factors. All these factors contribute to an increase in the pressure on community members that impacts their mental health, which is not adequately addressed and needs to be emphasized for the well-being of the community.

Taking that into account, we initiated the Galaxy Well-being and Mental Health Project which aims to improve the well-being of the Galaxy community, while also creating a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive environment. Come join us and let’s discuss what we are currently doing in the project and how we can better address this in the Galaxy community.

This BoF will be held online. However, if you are participating and you are at GCC, then you are encouraged to gather with your fellow local participants in the assigned room.
