The benefits of diversity and inclusion include greater employee engagement, increased innovation and overall company performance. However, increasing the diversity and inclusion of any organization is easier said than done. Despite significant efforts, results are lagging across most industries. We believe that the answer lies in more closely following the science. Drawing from a wide body of research on D&I from the leading labs around the world, this session will explore the critical decisions that organizations get wrong as they seek to increase diversity and inclusion, and outline three key stages for building a strategy that works. Join Dr. David Rock of the NeuroLeadership Institute as he reviews industry insights around the inclusion challenge. Participants will explore: - How exclusion debilitates productivity and how inclusion efforts can backfire - Where organizational missteps are common - Outline a more effective science-based approach to inclusion, aimed at improving workplace interactions and navigating the pitfalls of cognitive bias

How many times do you attend events, take a lot of notes, but then fail to put them into place when you return to work? This session is designed to break that cycle by giving you the chance to apply real-world “hacking” techniques to your biggest HR challenges and problems.

The end result? Through this creative destruction, we will break some of our old thinking, create new solutions, and then share our work with the other attendees at the end of the event.

If you are an innovative leader that needs a creative outlet, join us.

If could use some ideas for how to be more innovative, join us.

If want to take a break from listening and do some hands-on work, join us.

It is a known fact that a team or company can never outgrow its leaders. If we want our companies to be innovative, we need to practice this ourselves as HR leaders. In this special session, two proven voices in the HR community will moderate participatory sessions designed to help you learn the concepts of hackathons and apply them to the workplace with experiential learning exercises.

Research illustrates that diversity is a contributor to innovation and business value. However, simply having diversity is not enough!  A critical component of D&I success is based on a key set of behaviors. Displaying these behaviors consistently requires developing the "habits of inclusion" that will inspire innovation, business value, and growth.

You will learn:

  • How the habits of inclusion promote innovation and growth
  • How to highlight the habits of inclusion that promote innovation
  • The case studies of cultures that have developed the habits of inclusion

As work environments become more casual, harassment cases tend to increase. HR practitioners are responding by requiring harassment/employment law training for management. But is that an effective approach or just a box to check? Hear the case study of how one of Silicon Valley’s hottest companies, Unity Technologies, is teaching executives how to prevent, not just handle workplace harassment. Attendees will be taken through a simple exercise, demonstrating how they can engage managers while teaching them to spot and stop borderline behavior before it becomes bad. They will to develop day-to-day management practices that promote a casual workplace that is free from workplace discrimination and harassment and dispel common myths about how a typical harassment/employment law class must be conducted.

The current social climate has left many communities feeling unsafe and vulnerable to harassment and discriminatory treatment.  The workplace is comprised of people with various identities—racial and ethnic minorities, women, parents, caregivers, people with disabilities, people who identify as LGBT, and veterans, just to name a few.  All employees, regardless of their backgrounds, should feel comfortable in bringing their diverse identities to the workplace, feeling assured that their diversity will not subject them to harassment or discriminatory treatment.

Federal civil rights laws only provide protection for a limited group of protected classes.  Furthermore, under Title VII of the Civil Right Acts, conduct is considered harassment only if it is “severe” and “pervasive.”  As such, federal laws leave a gap in the categories of protections that they offer for all people and set too low of a standard if organizations are relying on their mere compliance with federal law to create a culture of inclusiveness.

With the groundbreaking #metoo movement that recently erupted on social media, it is apparent that cultures of harassment remain a problem that organizations around the country must address.  The business case for broadly embracing diversity and creating an anti-harassment culture has never been so compelling.

This session will discuss the rationale for why organizations should aim to create a culture of inclusion and anti-harassment that spans beyond what is legally mandated.  Creating a culture of inclusiveness and anti-harassment requires that organizations not only comply with legal regulations for protecting civil rights, but go beyond what the law requires to ensure that all people within its doors feel welcome and can be the most productive employees that they can be.  Creating an inclusive and anti-harassment culture may be an organization’s most powerful tool in responding to #metoo.

What you will learn:

  • The Importance of “Talking the Talk” and “Walking the Walk”: Why Organizations Should Have Both Have Anti-Harassment Policies and Anti-Harassment Practice
  • Why a Clear Understanding of Your Organization’s Values Are Critical to Creating a Culture of Anti-Harassment 
  • Simple Daily Steps Your Organization Can Take to Create a More Inclusive Culture

By 2024, workers 50+ will make up 35% of the workforce.  Generational diversity in the labor market is currently at an all-time high, with members of the workforce ranging from Traditionalists to Gen Z.  As labor markets remain tight and finding great candidates gets harder, promoting an age-inclusive workplace culture is more important than ever. In this interactive panel discussion, we will cover how to leverage the strengths of a multigenerational workforce.

You will learn:

  • How to recognize and reduce ageism in the workplace
  • Proven strategies from leading organizations on cultivating and leveraging an age-diverse workforce
  • How to include age as an element of your inclusive diversity practices

Personal Perspective, Social Media, elevated national conversations, and polarizing opinions often collide in our places of work.  Leaders are frequently challenged to identify suitable forums to address what often plays out through corporate culture and employee morale.  How do we, in a responsible way, openly discuss the events impacting our society that also impact how companies engage with clients, partners, and employees. 

The Angry roundtable is designed to open dialogue about critical issues in our society and their impacts in the workplace.  Central to these issues is how leaders in your organizations serve as advocates (or not) in providing platforms to employees to be heard in a respectful way. 

Have the leaders in your organization stepped up to initiate discussions?  Have your leaders been at the center of discussions, positively or in a controversial way? Have your leaders leveraged relationships with their peers or other thought leaders to encourage thoughtful dialogue and resolutions?

Join the discussion as we ask critical questions in an effort to gather relevant information in search of real solutions.

You will learn:

  • What issues have been most impactful
  • How we objectively identify the factual elements of issues
  • How are majority and dissenting opinions accommodated in a respectful way
  • Understand how your organization been impacted by these issues and who have been impacted the most
  • Remedies to best address differences in opinion

In this session, participants will be introduced to a three-part framework of approaching difference.  As we go about our lives and work days, we may be exposed to ideas, people, and ways of being that are new or different than our previous experience.  How do we affirm our own values and experiences when engaging with values and experiences that may not align?  The Self-Other-Bridge model empowers individuals to practice a mode of engagement that involves critical self-reflection, perspective-taking, and dynamic collaboration.  By modeling this approach as leaders in the workplace, and encouraging staff to model it as well, we can create work environments that foster intercultural competence and productive engagement across difference.

Participants will:

  • Explore multiple ways of engaging with difference
  • Engage with a simple three-part framework that can be applied immediately
  • Practice applying the framework to a current workplace situation

In today’s hiring landscape, a diverse slate isn't enough and won't help us move the needle if we don't pay attention to how we raise the awareness of our interviewers and hiring managers on the importance of being an inclusive interviewer.  Candidates often come from different backgrounds and experiences than our own, so understanding our biases, preferences, and awareness and the impact they have on the interviewing/hiring process, will enable organizations to hire the diverse workforce needed to be successful today and tomorrow.  Come join this fun and interactive session where we will share useful tips and mechanisms for 'really' doing this seemingly simply process well.

Learning Objectives:

  • Awareness on the importance of going beyond slating and integrating inclusive interviewing
  • Strategies and tips for being an inclusive interviewer
  • Learn critical concepts/terms that foster an understanding of how interviewing is NOT objective and indeed an interaction that can work or not depending on the awareness of the interviewer

Presenter:
Noland Walker, Senior Director of Content, ITVS

ITVS works with world-class documentary filmmakers to develop and present programs that take creative risks, start conversations or represent perspectives not typically seen on television. We are one of the biggest funders and co-producers of independent documentary films in the U.S. Diversity is core to our founding mission -- we believe that it is (and has always been) central to the innovation and dynamism that makes the United States unique. Numbers matter, but stories are the way we make sense of our lives and of the larger world. What is the story around diversity that people in your company are telling themselves and each other?

In this session, I will share some of the challenges, struggles and successes that ITVS has had in becoming a leading funder, co-producer, and broadcaster of documentary films - a form of expression that by most accounts is experiencing a “golden age.”  Assuming that innovation demands demonstration, I will illustrate the centrality of diversity in our success with samples of the work that ITVS has developed and co-produced. I will also draw on examples from Hollywood and film history, a cautionary tale or two from the world of sports, a few statistics here and there, and perhaps a few brave volunteers from the room to guide our discussion.

You will learn:

  • How to gauge progress in the multi-directional world of diversity.
  • How to identify individuals who can make a difference in your office.
  • How to build shared understandings of the word “diversity” and how shared understandings can enhance relationships and advance organizational goals.

Making diversity a priority is key for more inclusive innovation, and it requires looking at the benefits of diversity through a positive lens. More than the moral imperative to support those who are most able, regardless of their race or gender, building a diverse team can bring a science-driven innovation company greater creativity, problem-solving, empathy, and understanding of globalized business. In this session, I will discuss how inclusive innovation outlines the ways in which diversity proves itself necessary when addressing potential blind spots throughout the creative problem-solving process in the sciences, tech, and more. The race to innovate directly depends upon those doing the innovating, and that is where diverse teams have an advantage.

You Will Learn:

  • Three ways startups and businesses can begin diversifying their teams today
  • Why creating more inclusivity is key in helping companies stand out on local, national, and global scales
  • How diversity and out-of-the-box thinking can forge better results when tackling the most challenging problems we face, such as the production and provision of food, healthcare, and energy

People with disabilities are the largest and fastest growing minority in the world, in the U.S., surpassing the Hispanic population by 5%.  It is also a segment of the population that greatly impacts corporate America from a regulatory standpoint from the EEOC to the OFCCP for companies that are U.S. Federal Contractors.  From talent acquisition, management, retention and diversity practices to learning and development, accessibility, accommodations, celebrations and much more, Human Resource and diversity executives must understand the issues, opportunities and best practices from the standpoint of quick hits and long-term wins.  This session is not about the law nor it is about theory. It is about practical applications and scalable solutions.

You will learn:

  • The impact of the current legislation relative to HR and Diversity
  • How to manage the critical components of organizational readiness for both quick hits and long-term success
  • Corporate best practices from every industry
