Get Directions

People who really make organizational change happen are those who can effectively think outside of their own experience. The only way to create an environment where people like this succeed is to be very explicit about how privilege affects the world and our workplaces, and embrace diversity through action. 

This event series focuses on providing our community with a safe space to share their stories, discuss challenges and for us to redefine management to increase the importance of empathy in leadership — setting the framework for a supportive work environment that lasts. 

We’re choosing to target advocates with this series — leaders with high social and political capital who are well positioned to influence the environment in which they live and work. 

This series is set up to feature other populations of people that are too often negatively affected by bias at work in future events - online and in-person (e.g., people with disabilities, those from historically underserved populations, people affected by ageism and other implicit bias, and more).
