The movement for equity and equality changed how we live, how we approach work. Navigating change is always challenging, but when you’re navigating change in uncharted territory like this, it can feel especially daunting. Fortunately, we’re not alone. Conscious, connected leaders know that at every level there are team members ready to activate their strengths and contribute to building the path forward. Having a strong, connected team means we have an environment that centers belonging, inclusion, diversity, and flexibility.

In this interactive session, you are our storytellers and together we will invite individual voices to craft a story. Listen carefully - we ask volunteers to share for 2-3 minutes of insights based on a community prompt. We will start with who you are and why the topic is important to you. 

Attendees will leave this session with key takeaways and next steps that will serve to support their journey as a conscious, connected leader.
