Breakout Panel 1 // Cultivating Psychological Safety on TeamsThe research is clear – psychological safety is more critical than any other factor for making a team work. A shared belief held by individuals that their team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking isn’t just “nice to have” but a necessity for company growth, employee retention, and long-term success. In this session, panelists will discuss the challenges and successes they’ve encountered while working to foster a greater sense of psychological safety in their teams and organizations. They will share specific actions people leaders can take to create environments that welcome questions, express unique perspectives, and allow people to safely bring their authentic selves to work.
Breakout Panel 2 // DEI through DisruptionThe world has changed dramatically over the last year, but one thing remains the same: if we are not consciously including all people, they will be unconsciously excluded by default. In order to achieve true diversity, equity, and inclusion, we need to intentionally move from trying to de-bias minds individually and focus instead on thoughtfully redesigning contexts, processes, and practices. This will create a new normal that blocks bias, makes inclusivity the path of least resistance or default option, and ultimately has a big impact on business outcomes.
Breakout Panel 1 // Practicing Everyday Inclusion: Whose job is DEI?What does everyday inclusion look like? How do individuals impact inclusion and belonging in their teams and organizations? Learn what you can do as an employee to start where you are and make DEI an intentional daily practice in your life. Review examples of normal people’s actions that profoundly impacted the lives of others and their organizations. Learn how seemingly small actions over time lead to big outcomes.
Breakout Panel 2 // Clumsy Curiosity: Moving Towards Effective AllyshipDiscover tips and tricks on how to become better allies and how to enable these relationships to grow. We will also discuss how those in underrepresented groups can allow for some clumsy curiosity – creating space for allies to learn and grow – while also maintaining a duty to self by setting boundaries. Learn how to create a space where people can ask questions and make mistakes but only if they are willing to be open to being corrected and learning.
