The Workplace as a Vector for Cultural Transformation
Thank you for your submission.
It’s Everyone’s Job: The Workplace as a Vector for Cultural Transformation
Across industries, the role of “Chief Diversity Officer” (or some similar moniker) is on the rise. This group of people is tasked with the herculean task of building equity in workplaces that exist within a wider society that is not equitable.
Through hundreds of hours of research and interviews, Best and her team discovered common challenges and opportunities for visionary leaders (and also hopefully everyone) to cultivate workplace culture not just to build a more profitable company but also a more just and equitable society.
We will talk through the following:
- Ways to reduce human bias in hiring
- Why candidate stories are important and the responsibility we carry as HR leaders
- Finding great candidates and keeping them engaged through the hiring process
- How storytelling can be applied at scale in the workplace
- How culture work in the workplace can scale to have broader societal impact
