Leaders can serve as pivotal forces for change within organizations that have fallen short when it comes to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). How can leaders break the cycle of the status quo and foster an environment that celebrates and benefits from diversity? What are effective strategies for creating an equitable structure that ensures all voices are heard and valued? How can leaders inspire an organizational culture where inclusion is more than a buzzword, but an embedded principle in every facet of the company's operations? How does transparency about past missteps and future intentions play a role in this transformation? How can leaders leverage their influence to not only reshape their organizations internally, but also contribute to societal change and justice?

Do you or your leaders get frustrated with survey follow-up processes, or simply don’t follow up? Many organizations use surveys to understand employee engagement, retention, and culture. However, leaders often feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of data and often struggle to create clear action plans–or simply don’t find the time to do so. In this workshop, we will share best practices and identify tools that can help ensuring that actions are implemented and progress is monitored. You’ll leave the workshop with practices that can help you with your follow-up work and you’ll learn about a tool designed to assist you by utilizing gamification and science-based research to ensure a more engaging and effective approach.

We all know that feedback is the key to effective teamwork, but delivering it can present a minefield of challenges. From framing tough feedback and navigating different communication styles, to managing up and voicing insights with leaders, it’s no wonder many teams leave feedback to annual performance touchpoints–to the detriment of team growth and culture. In this session, we will provide you with the tools and skills to transform your relationship with feedback. Through a mixture of open dialogue about shared challenges, best practice insights for feedback, and research-based scenario discussions, our goal is for you to walk away with concrete steps that will help your team build a culture of feedback.
