VideoSession green 150x150 Leading in Times of Crisis: Lessons from 9/11, Bioterrorism, the NFL Concussion and COVID Crises, and the Ukrainian War

Presented by: Dr. Thom Mayer

Far from a theoretical discussion of leading, Dr. Mayer weaves stories, quotes, history, and biography into practical lessons learned from his over 20 years of leading  through times of crisis. Leadership is a noun, a subject for academics or a set of slides or CDs; but, “leading” is not only a verb, but a verb always in the active voice.  Come learn the skills and abilities to lead teams in ambiguous times of cataclysmic change during this engaging, entertaining discussion.

Presented by: Ethicist Dr. Michael Gillette

This highly interactive case-based discussion will take a deep dive into ethical issues related to efforts to improve DEI in the workplace. We will begin by examining  historical examples of disparate treatment of individuals across various demographics within our society and use those examples to define the various forms of bias. We  will then consider the ethical implications of bias by distinguishing between ethically justified and ethically unjustified discriminations. We will conclude by identifying the skills necessary to create an inclusive and supportive workplace.
