Who We Are

Established in 2011, we are a Massachusetts-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit devoted to developing and supporting mindful systems, institutions, and leaders, through partnerships that prioritize intersectional equity and engage in impactful social change, thereby creating a culture of wellbeing. Ivy Child works with senior administrative leadership and all staff throughout systems to co-create well-being programs. Ivy Child believes that you can lead from any chair. We lead by modeling this behavior. Ivy Child International enhances the social and emotional well-being of systems and communities through the co-creation of multicultural frames and approaches to mindfulness informed by research and positive psychology. Mindfulness is a uniting force that inspires resilience and leadership.
