Veronica Y. Womack, PhD
Associate Director, Inclusive Learning Communities
Searle Center for Advancing Learning & Teaching
Northwestern University

Mindfulness-based interventions can yield improved psychological and behavioral outcomes. However, if individuals do not feel like they can engage as their authentic selves, they may not reap the full benefits of such programs. This webinar will highlight culturally responsive considerations to mind-body interventions that may enhance one’s sense of belonging and subsequently be more inclusive and effective.  

Veronica Womack is an educational developer and is currently the Associate Director of Inclusive Learning Communities at Northwestern University’s Searle Center for Advancing Learning & Teaching. Veronica earned her doctorate in Social Psychology from Howard University and completed an epidemiology postdoctoral fellowship at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. She is also a mindfulness coach, offering consultations and facilitating mindfulness classes for community-based research programs. Veronica recently co-edited a book volume published by Routledge entitled, “Beyond White Mindfulness Critical Perspectives on Racism, Well-being and Liberation”.
