ROI Reimagined

How Inclusive Leadership Thrives in Adversity

Categories: HR Event
Due to recent events, our signature in-person Return on Inclusion event has been postponed to February 24, 2021. However, we will be offering a free digital ROI experience on June 18, 2020. We hope that you will attend.

Human potential is unleashed when we feel like we belong. That is why inclusive workplaces experience higher engagement, performance, and results. And the reality in the years, months and weeks leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic is that many people still felt unable to bring their true selves to work.

In the weeks and months since the onset of this crisis, we now find ourselves living through a time of great uncertainty and change in which many of us are physically apart, yet virtually connected. And quite suddenly in the abrupt shift to a world of virtual work for many-- some of the aspects of diversity – of identity, background, and experience – that we worked to downplay or minimize pre-crisis, were suddenly put on display in a way that could never have been imagined.

As we navigate our new reality, we suddenly have an unprecedented opportunity to come together around our shared experiences, and to work together as allies, advocates and accomplices, to build the future of work and create cultures of inclusion where everyone can thrive.

Inclusion matters now more than ever before.

How can we mitigate speed as one of the worst enablers of bias as we make rapid changes to the way we work? How can we mobilize in solidarity with those who are being disproportionately affected right now? What does it mean to be an inclusive leader, and how can we continue to lead inclusively in this unprecedented moment?

Join us as Jennifer Brown, workplace Diversity and Inclusion expert, and author of Inclusion and How to be an Inclusive Leader, provides tools on how to strategically leverage and implement what we've learned during this pandemic to foster more inclusive work environments. In addition to her keynote, Jennifer will also speak with Alison Anthony (President & CEO, Tulsa Area United Way), John Hewitt (President & CEO, Matrix Service Company) and Sandra Quince (SVP, Global Diversity and Inclusion Executive, Bank of America) as they share how they - and their organizations - have embraced diversity and inclusion during this difficult time.
