Panelists will be offering real answers to your toughest questions.
Examples include:
  • What if my people are hesitant, anxious or flat out refusing to return to work?
  • How do I address the mental health crisis within my organization?
  • After such a divisive year politically and socially, how do I unify our team and create opportunities for us to heal together?
  • How can I more effectively approach senior leadership and have the hard conversations about our culture?

Our expert panel has gone headfirst into tough conversations about marginalized communities, made unpopular but necessary choices to put people first, failed hard in order to succeed and made accountant-types sweat with their radically innovative thinking. They are problem solvers. Let them help you solve yours!
