WELCOMING WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP
From the C-suite to the Board Room, a panel of women leaders candidly share the challenges they have encountered and the experiences that helped propel their careers. This all-star panel will engage in storytelling that informs and inspires.
DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, AND EQUITY PANEL
Diversity, Inclusion and Equity professionals from Accenture, Amazon and Nestlé talk candidly about their successes and challenges and engage the audience in a conversation about how to create more inclusive work environments.
START-UPS, TECHNOLOGY, AND INCLUSION
Start-up and technology company culture used to be about ping pong tables, heavy workloads and free snacks. But in today’s fast changing, distributed environment, how do new companies ensure everyone feels included and their voices and ideas heard? This panel will explore inclusiveness in technology companies.
INVITING EVERYONE TO APPLY
As acquiring human resources becomes more challenging, successful leaders go beyond the minimum accommodations to make communities and workplaces welcoming for under-employed groups including veterans, career returners and neuro-diverse populations. This panel of experts will explore the opportunities creative leaders can find within the labor market's traditionally overlooked sectors and give advice on how to seek and engage these rich sources of talent.
Additional speakers will be added to the website shortly.
