2021 Sessions

*Organizational Culture: Accountability and Community Care

Speaker: Dr. Laura Quiros

WED. 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM

The concept of accountability often carries a sense of liability or even punishment.  Instead, as we consider organizational culture, can we shift that understanding of accountability to include brave dialogues based on generosity and compassion?  This session will explore how to create or rebuild organizational cultures where emphatically accountable spaces are normative, allowing us to take care of ourselves and the community-at-large.

Self-Awareness and Awkward Conversations: Unleashing the Power of Your Emotions to Lead You Forward

Speakers: David Morelli and Emily Gendron

WED. 1:05 PM - 1: 50 PM

As leaders, harnessing the power of self-awareness is one of our most potent tools to successfully navigate tough conversations. Learn how to create the space within yourself to effectively lead people from a multitude of backgrounds through the modern-day minefield discussions about social justice and other challenging topics.

**Effective Discussions and Relationships: Strengthen Your Communications through Personal Styles, PT. 1

Speaker: Dr. Maria Gomez Albrecht

WED. 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Effective leadership and successful relationships start with personal awareness and insights. Through this two-part workshop, you will better understand your unique leadership and communication styles for greater effectiveness in discussions and in building professional and social connections.  It uses the world-renowned Everything DiSC® assessment to generate deep personal insights that you can use to maximize your interpersonal communications skills.  Establish confidence, improve leadership presence, and learn to interact for impact, building trust and collaboration with others.

As part of the program, you will receive a detailed 25+ page personalized assessment report, access to the exclusive MyEverythingDiSC team-building website, and a digital badge, which you can use as a professional credential.  More advanced than a certificate, a digital badge is a micro-credential that contains detailed information about the learning experience and the knowledge gained.  It is shareable across the internet, including LinkedIn.  Each badge comes with searchable meta-data linked to an individual and the earned badge.

Strength through Listening, Relating, & Building: A Fireside Chat

Speakers: Dr. Laura Quiros and Dr. Damyn Kelly

THUS. 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM

Traumas are more than physical or mental injuries and include the effects of experiences ranging from the interpersonal to the sociopolitical.  Oppression, specifically racism, is an example of both the interpersonal and sociopolitical.  Join the two founding members—Dr. Laura Quiros and Dr. Damyn Kelly—of the Prospanica Center for Social Justice Advisory Board in a fireside chat.  Their conversation will examine racism, social justice, and the intentional curiosity and openness required to lead with strength in a divided culture.

Putting Intentions into Practice: Power up your DEI Initiatives with FDIC

Speakers: Isaac E. Hernandez and Nikita Pearson

THUS. 12:10 PM - 12:55 PM

Most organizations have a diversity and inclusion plan. But are they impactful? 

The magnitude of the racial equality and social justice movement of 2020 has prompted employers to reimagine their approaches to diversity, equity, and inclusion.  Many companies are looking to their employees for input to confront persistent challenges that hinder equitable hiring practices, employee engagement and advancement, and business activities. 

The FDIC’s commitment to DEI is not just a strategy - it’s the heart of the agency’s mission and impacts everything it does as an organization.  To ensure the continuance of its shared commitment to advance, the FDIC is moving beyond merely checking a box.  It is leading with accountability and social responsibility to develop transformative, authentic and action able diversity, equity and inclusion strategies.  Learn from two FDIC executives on what the agency is currently doing to collectively reshape the infrastructure so that it reflects a shared commitment to advance.

Expected Outcomes:

  • Learn what tangible actions you can take to collectively move your organization forward
  • Understand how to facilitate meaningful conversations to identify and reduce barriers toward achieving genuine inclusive practices
  • Discover ways to develop this knowledge within context of your professional sphere of influence

*Intercultural Leadership

Speaker: Dr. Brian Leander

THUS. 1:05 PM - 1: 50 PM

In addition to the social, political and economic forces, which continue to transform organizations, the movement towards diversity, equity and inclusion appears to be led by individuals who are achieving success towards full participation of all kinds of people by dismantling racial, ethnic, and cultural barriers. By doing so, they are redefining organizational leadership as a range of culturally intelligent behaviors that positively influence how an ever widening range of people contribute to and experience organizational citizenship. This workshop explores and discusses the relationship between leader cultural intelligence and employee organizational citizenship behavior, and how people of color are critical to advancing transformational diversity, equity and inclusion.

In and Out Groups – Navigating An Uneven Playing Field

Speaker: Richard Lopez, Director, Global Diversity and Inclusion at Dell

FRI. 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM

This session will explore the topic of In and Out Groups and how power dynamics play out all around us and, in particular, in the workplace.  We will discuss the subtle behaviors and attitudes that reinforce these power dynamics and their impact on trust and belonging. Following this session, you will have a better understanding of systemic advantages and how these advantages impact equity, influence, and engagement.

Equity, Identity, & Breaking Paradigms

Speakers: Laura Saldivar Luna, Leana Nakielski, and Victor Arias

FRI. 12:10 PM - 12:55 PM

Executive leadership within corporate America has looked the same forever and has institutionalized a particular corporate culture.  However, leaders from communities of color have risen to positions of power and influence.  Through this conversation, we'll hear from several individuals who have navigated the traditionally white and male corporate culture, and we'll discuss how all professionals can dismantle that system while also remaining attentive to their careers.

*A Critical Leadership Dialogue: Self-Preservation vs. Self-Sacrifice

Speaker: Dr. Laura Quiros

FRI. 1:05 PM - 1:50 PM

Purposely situated at the end of the Summit, this workshop will engage participants in a critical dialogue around the difference between self-preservation and self-sacrifice. We will engage in a reflective exercise to intentionally unpack when we need to lean into self-preservation and what happens when we choose self-sacrifice.
