Purpose and social impact play an increasingly significant role in a variety of business metrics like brand reputation, revenue, employee retention, and more. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is no longer a “nice to have” in today’s landscape, and companies that want to thrive in 2023 will need to recognize the value CSR brings to their business health, workforce, and community. Join Accelerist’s CEO and founder as she uncovers 2023 trends in CSR that can help your company flourish.

This interactive and immersive session is an “inclusion intervention” for leaders who are looking to cultivate and strengthen their organization’s culture of belonging. Because where there is belonging, there is high performance, highly engaged employees, psychological safety, and the freedom to be authentic. But when belonging is broken in an organization, however, the opposite is true. In this session, you’ll gain insight about enhancing belonging by eradicating ineffective DEI practices; recognizing the consequences of excluding some in an attempt to include others; and embedding belonging at the team and organizational level. And much more.

The Covid era has taught us that what employees experience in life can, and likely will, impact their work and teams. But when managers employ the skills of empathic leadership, tuning into the personal and professional lives of their employees, teams perform better and employees are much more productive. How can managers stay connected with the life events and stresses of employees–and respond accordingly to push goals forward with empathy and flexibility? What kinds of coaching can help managers recognize boundaries and be considerate about privacy?

Everything we know about work is changing. The speed of business and technology demands a revolution in the way we connect people to their work.

Most employers now say they support a whole-life approach to employee well-being. Yet it’s just lip service if the culture doesn’t allow workers to take PTO, sabbaticals, and other breaks without fear for their standing and career advancement.

What kinds of innovative approaches can companies pursue, ranging from new health benefits to improved work practices?
