Session and Workshop Descriptions

Opening Session with Breakfast Keynote – 9 am to 10:15 am

 Covering, Intersectionality, and Allyship: The Next Way We Need to Advocate for Inclusive Organizations

 

Breakfast Keynote Speaker:

Jennifer Brown
CEO  |  Jennifer Brown Consulting

Keynote Description:

To give their fullest contribution, employees must feel they can bring their full selves to work; however research shows many do not feel comfortable doing so. They are spending valuable energy every day minimizing or managing aspects of their own diversity – of identity, background, experience – in order to succeed. This takes a particular toll on diverse talent – women, people of color, LGBT individuals, people with disabilities – at a time when organizations are struggling to recruit, retain, and develop those same individuals. But all of us, and the business, pay the price.

Join Jennifer Brown — workplace Diversity and Inclusion expert, and author of Inclusion: Diversity, the New Workplace and the Will to Change — for a thought-provoking presentation about inclusion, the workplace and the call to action for leaders. In today’s shifting landscape, we need to think more broadly about the very definitions of diversity which will resonate with current and future talent.

How can we build more inclusive workplace environments where all kinds of talent feel welcome?
