    Unleash Your Inner Superhero

    Presented by Keynote Speaker Jennifer Bouman -Steagall

    If you were a superhero, what kind of superhero would you be and why?  Consider the traits of a superhero: (1) they earn the respect of others; (2) they are helpful in solving problems; (3) they help everyone in need without regard to protected class status; (4) they exhibit courage in the face of fear; and (5) they put the needs of the many (e.g., the organization) above their own self-interests.  Don’t look now, but your inner superhero just showed up!  Each of us has untapped courage, power and potential; if only we could give that potential a voice and a mission.  If you were a superhero, what would you be doing differently in your personal and professional life?  Do you know how to overcome your personal kryptonite?  Swoop in and join us for this fun and empowering program as we explore powerful tips and strategies for unleashing your inner superhero to achieve more personal and professional growth.  All Superheroes welcome!

    Shifting Tides in Sexual Harassment Training and Prevention

    Presented by Shayda Le

    With the rise of the #MeToo movement and an increasing frequency of harassment issues surfacing in mainstream media, it is more important than ever for employers to re-evaluate the way they train their employees on this important issue. While traditional trainings focus on simply defining harassment and instructing employees to avoid violating the letter of the law, effective trainings focus on the role of bystanders in preventing inappropriate behavior, and in understanding the impact that harassment has on corporate culture. This presentation will discuss how to make harassment trainings more targeted and effective in today’s environment.

    In the current climate, it is more important than ever for employers to respond appropriately to complaints of misconduct. 

    Often, the first step is conducting an effective and thorough workplace investigation to establish a factual basis for an employer’s response. When done effectively, these investigations are also a crucial component of an effective defense. This presentation will discuss best practices for workplace investigations and the steps employers can take to ensure their investigations are successful.
