The past year and a half has brought about unprecedented change in the workplace. The much-needed and long-overdue racial reckoning that is occurring in workplaces across America paired with the emotional, psychological, and physical stress created by the global pandemic has changed the workplace. As organizations prepare to return to “normal,” leaders are presented with the opportunity to reimagine work.  

 

Presented by Workplace Peace Institute, this two-day leadership conference is designed to provide leaders with critical skills and conceptual frameworks to lead in a changing workplace.

 

Participants will … 

 

  • Experience the power of mindfulness practices for building personal resiliency and learn how to cultivate these practices in the workplace. 

 

  • Develop a personal leadership purpose statement with supporting values to serve as a foundational guidepost for all leadership decisions. 

 

  • Learn the Leading with a Racial Equity Lens framework to apply to all policy, program, and workplace practices and decisions.

 

  • Gain insights into the criteria necessary for cultivating authenticity in the workplace.

 

  • Learn the Trauma-Informed Leadership framework to authentically care for and connect with those they lead, ultimately creating a workplace environment where all people can thrive.
     

  • Collaborate with a community of passionate, wholehearted, leaders who share a commitment to creating highly engaged and highly connected workplaces. 

 

This leadership conference is designed to be highly collaborative, experiential, and physically engaging. Learning will be experienced through presentation, narrative storytelling, experiential activity, dialogue, and bodywork. Registration includes a light breakfast, lunch, and healthy snacks.

 

In-person or virtual participation is available.
