Workplace Wellbeing Ambassador Program

The Workplace Wellbeing Ambassador (WWA) program is a pilot program that plays a key strategic role at UBC, supporting the Human Resources—Workplace Health and Wellbeing Services team in their effort to embed wellbeing and wellbeing practices within UBC workplaces.

The program aims to:

  • Empower staff and faculty to support wellbeing activities within UBC departments
  • Provide opportunities to build knowledge and apply learnings in the workplace
  • Support staff and faculty in their efforts to positively impact workplace wellbeing

Applications for the 2023/2024 term are now closed.


Workplace Wellbeing Ambassadors champion workplace wellbeing and support the overall enhancement of UBC workplaces.
