From Unconscious Bias to Conscious Communications: How and Why You Should Use Your Role to Foster Inclusion and Belonging

Diversity, inclusion and belonging are NOT “just an HR thing.” We are in a time that requires internal stakeholders at all levels to recognize the seriousness and impact of our words on how welcome and included our employees feel. Diversity and inclusion efforts will continue to fail without communicators becoming more equipped and involved.

Kim Clark, experienced diversity and inclusion communications expert, will help us tackle our own unconscious biases, acknowledge areas where bias exists and help us see that we are well positioned to be more intentionally inclusive—which in turn helps our organizations lower unwanted attrition, be more innovative and increase employee engagement.

You’ll learn:

  • What unconscious bias is, how it shows up and the impact it has
  • How to address your biases in order to fulfill your role in promoting diversity, inclusion and belonging
  • How to partner with HR, employee resource groups, executives and people managers to improve the impact of company-sponsored and grassroots efforts
  • How to help managers design their teams for belonging
  • How to be and how to teach others to be a conscious communicator

Turn Your Managers Into Superstars: Boost Collaboration, Quality and Opportunity with a Manager Communications Program

But when you learn to empower others, suddenly your cadre of communicators grows exponentially. You can help your peers in other business areas help you by turning them into communications superstars. During this in-depth workshop, Jessica Arnold will show you exactly how to empower business leaders and managers to communicate their important messages, and in the process provide opportunities for development, collaboration and community.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Turn your subject matter experts into high-quality communicators
  • Launch, manage and sustain a communications training program that amplifies your engagement efforts
  • Identify and overcome common obstacles to effective communication by managers and business leaders
  • Show participants the value of becoming active communicators—and ensure your program is mutually beneficial

Measuring for Success: Collect and Analyze Data that Improves Your Programs and Impresses Execs

Data that’s just “nice to know” won’t help you make informed decisions or show leaders the value of your work. To make an impact, you have to parse and present metrics that matter most to leadership in a way that swiftly tells a story it can act on. This workshop arms you with the techniques you need to quickly—and convincingly—communicate results and showcase how your work drives organizational goals and hits management’s hot buttons. See how AARP is strategically using the vast amount of data available to them in today’s tech landscape.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Determine which KPIs tell you the most about employee engagement—and which ones matter most to leadership
  • Draw valuable insights from the data on your digital channels and use them to optimize your programs
  • Blend qualitative and quantitative analysis to tell a cohesive story
  • Show the impact of internal communications on the bottom line and justify an increased budget

The Impact of Space on Organizational Culture

People and culture are key elements in ensuring success of an organization today. If we don't attract the best and the brightest talent, we won’t be competitive. Ultimately, it’s up to the organization to hone a corporate culture that creates great user experiences and compelling environments that entice and inspire. Space has an impact and it can absolutely be a differentiator, but it's not the only factor. If you have a broken culture or a toxic work environment, the most gorgeous space on the planet isn't going to fix that. Kay Sargent has helped countless organizations transform their workplaces. During this session she’ll share her insights on what’s truly necessary for a space to support and shape culture.

You’ll:

  • Explore the importance of aligning your space with your culture
  • Learn the impact space has on work, the workforce and the workplace

  • Discuss how to ensure your space is the physical embodiment of your company’s culture
