Writing the New Book of Work
No book was written to help us navigate all the challenges HR has faced so far in 2020. In this newly created NOW of Work, HR has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to frame everything anew: how we think, how we design, the actions we take, and the technologies we deploy. It’s our time to write the new book of work — an opportunity to redefine work, redefine an industry and redefine ourselves. But only if we assess, align and act like never before. Jason Averbook will explain the role of mindset, the importance of thinking digital, and the necessary impact of both on your business and people strategies.
Culture Matters: How to Interrupt Systemic Discrimination From the Top Down and Bottom Up
Workplaces are waking up to the reality that they are a microcosm of larger societal issues of systemic discrimination. Addressing this realization includes tackling how systemic discrimination is built into the fabric of today’s workplaces, as commonly reflected in the composition of C-Suites and boardrooms. Examining what we do and then how we do it is necessary to address the culture, practices and processes that create a revolving door for women and under-represented talent. To succeed, this challenge must be holistically approached, applying evidence-based, integrated solutions that are impactful and sustainable, and create accountability through consistent measurement. Dr. Tolbert will spotlight the role of technology in bringing about change toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive future of work.
