8:00pm Wrap-up: More cocktails and conversation


Innovative organizations are seeking new ways to shift the decades old norms for diversity and inclusion. In 2018, we are experiencing a major shift to rethink our systems, processes, and mindsets. What better time to explore what is working, and collaborate together to find actionable ways to lead by inclusion.

Hear from our panelist practical advise, examples of what worked and what didn’t, and their perspective on how you can identify opportunities and improve your success rate by:

  • Addressing how we speak, listen, and hear
  • Providing safe spaces to push barriers, ideate, and solve problems
  • Creating programs and venues to foster mentorship and sponsorship within your organization and across industries

To lead with focus and inclusion takes confidence, advocacy, mentorship and sponsorship. Fast growth typically results in knee-jerk responses. Cultivating inclusive leadership affects who we hire and promote, who we mentor or sponsor, and how we speak, listen and act. Join our experts to to learn what it takes to swim upstream.
