Riding the Wings of Transformation: The Power of Radical & Fundamental Change
2020 was a challenging and unsettling year. From a global pandemic, to racial justice protests around the world, to U.S. election anxiety, and deepening political and ideological division seemingly everywhere, the challenges of the past 12 months have been extraordinary and difficult to navigate. Yet these difficulties have also sparked transformation. Because “necessity is the mother of invention,” many of us are working remotely more than ever, living in greater isolation which often translates to greater independence, socializing at a distance, rediscovering lost passions and hobbies, and embracing technology in more frequent and innovative ways. Rather than returning to “normal” or the status quo once a vaccine reduces the risk of viral transmission, let us discuss ways we can continue to ride the wings of transformation and make our personal and professional lives more rewarding and fulfilling.
Our interactive keynote discussion on March 2 will help identify and eradicate hidden barriers to advancement for underrepresented persons within your organizations. On day two, we’ll examine ways in which the major events of 2020 have impacted jury decision-making, how discrimination law perpetuates inequality, how to use the skills we’ve adapted through the pandemic to transform the way we litigate, corporate accountability related to corporate culture, Chapter 11 issues and study how to respectfully disagree and discuss sensitive subjects in our polarized world. During our final day we’ll reflect on tackling blind spots, on making changes in our workplaces to embrace inclusion, the incredible power of the word “yes” and exemplifying courageous leadership.
