The most effective leaders navigate highly diverse teams, being aware of any unconscious bias – all with an eye toward equity and profitability. Using real-world examples from workplaces who are making strides, this interactive discussion will explore what leaders at all levels can do to contribute to the overall movement including:

– How to deal with unconscious bias in yourself and team members;
– How to measure, motivate and reward the best teams;
– What types of metrics optimize innovation; and
– What actionable steps you can take to immediately impact positive change for your team and organization
