Event description

Creating an inclusive workplace is essential for growth and productivity, but it's not always easy to achieve – especially in today’s climate. In this inspiring and empowering workshop, you will discover the power of authenticity, learn how to overcome imposter syndrome, and find limitless possibilities, in place of bias and barriers. Olympian Simidele Adeagbo will share the transformational story of her journey to becoming both the first African woman and the first black woman to compete in Olympic skeleton (a sport she had no prior experience in and one in which athletes hurl themselves headfirst on a sled down an icy hill at 80 miles an hour). When we lift every voice, we unlock the real potential of our teams and change the game for all of us.

Key Takeaways
-Empower by cultivating empathy and expanding knowledge and diverse perspectives.
-Create conversations that unite, work to remove bias and champion an inclusive culture.
-Imagine limitless possibilities and the strength of togetherness when every voice is heard.
• Learn how to leverage listening as a powerful tool for inclusion, creativity,
collaboration, integration and innovation.
• Learn from other perspectives including the impact of microaggressions, language
and of being an F.O.D. (first, only, different).
• Activate the power of authenticity to bring your unique self to work every day, and bring out the best in each other.
