WORKSHOP SESSION TRACKS

Workshops will feature world-class diversity practice leaders who promote leadership skills and educate attendees on cultural transformation topics. Participants gain valuable tools and information that can be implemented in their organizations and community. Our compelling workshops with allow you to draw meaningful connections and explore the significance and role that piece plays in the Diversity puzzle. (Speaker Bios)

"LEADING FOR MAINSTREAMS & MARGINS"



Summary:
Mainstreams and margins present myriad adaptive challenges and opportunities for everyone who lives, works, and aspires to leadership in the 21st century. Mainstreams represent what is predominant in the group. Margins represent what predominant in the group. Both exist in every group and organizations and communities live and die in part by the relationships that prevail between the mainstreams and margins. 


In this experiential workshop, participants will begin to recognize both marginal and mainstream roles that they play in society; boost awareness of the characteristics of each role; explore past experience to see how our understanding of mainstreams and margins affect leadership decisions and uncover best practices for greater impact. 

Objectives: At the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize how margins and maintstreams function in organizations, environments, and sectors
  • Explore their own roles in creating and supporting these dynamics
  • Begin to develop their own capacity to navigate these cultural aspects successfully


"Connecting Workaholics, Whiners, and Slackers on Matters of Productivity"



Summary: While much time has been spent on how to create a diverse workplace, little attention is often given to how work can best get done with so many different backgrounds and perspectives in these organizations. Failing to address these productivity preferences only serves to limit team results and increase animosity between team members with different views on how work gets done.;


Objectives:  

  • Understand the danger in trying to "fix" those who productivity preferences is different, and instead start looking at the work to be done from their perspective
  • Develop a plan to get the different generations constructively talking about their differences
  • Determine the difference between business necessity and generational preferences in how work gets done
  • Use the ABC technique to resolve issues between generations related to how work gets done


"DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT - LEVERAGING YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF FOR SUCCESS"


Summary: Diversity of Thought is the new frontier. The implication of this new frontier in diversity is that leaders and organizations must let go of the idea that there is “one right way” and instead focus on creating a learning culture where people feel accepted, are comfortable contributing ideas, and actively seek to learn from each other.


Objectives: This session explores how you can leverage your authentic-self to create value in your organization by improving your thought-leadership.

  • Understand how “smart” organizations are introducing more powerful and nuanced approaches to operationalize the full range of human diversity
  • Learn how to utilize your diverse background/experiences to create value
  • Participate in interactive exercises designed to increase your self-awareness; and unlock your “diversity vault”
