Masterclass : Just Work, Get Sh*t Done Fast & Fair
Presented by Kim Scott, Best-Selling Author, Radical Candor and Trier-Lynn Bryant, Co-founder & CEO, Just Work
This Masterclass will take a deep dive into the Just Work framework on eradicating social injustice in the workplace.

Participants will engage in a “how-to” discussion on becoming a next generation leader.

We-all of us-consistently exclude, underestimate and underutilize huge numbers of people in the workplace. At the same time, we include overestimated and promote others beyond their level of competence. Not only is this immoral and unjust, its bad for business. The Just Work framework is the solution.

This masterclass will provide:
•  A toolkit to recognize injustice in the workplace
•  An action plan for creating “just” workplaces

Never be at a loss for words when you need to have the hard conversations.

An Afternoon with Gretchen Carlson; Stand Up, Speak Up!
An interview with Gretchen Carlson, Broadcast Journalist and Leader of the #MeToo Movement
Gretchen Carlson is one of the nation's most successful journalists and an internationally recognized advocate for women’s empowerment. Known for her in-depth, no-nonsense reporting, Gretchen has been on the front lines of every major U.S. news story for more than two decades. From the World Trade Center bombing, to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, to the extraordinary 2016 election, Gretchen’s catalog of interviews includes every U.S. President, Vice President and Presidential candidate as well as hundreds of other leaders in business, entertainment and politics.

In 2016, she stunned the world by accusing Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes of sexual harassment – and for the first time in her career, Gretchen became the story. By successfully taking on one of America’s most powerful men, she laid the foundation for the international #MeToo movement and inspired Showtime’s “The Loudest Voice” and Lionsgate’s “Bombshell.” She documents her personal story of courage – and those of thousands of other harassment survivors –  in her New York Times bestseller Be Fierce.

Gretchen will be interviewed by Mita Mallick, Head of Inclusion, Equity & Impact at Carta. They will discuss today’s political scene, sexual harassment culture, providing her own personal perspectives of faith and family, and the impact she has made on shaping the American story.

Masterclass :  Extinguishing Burn-Out and Identifying What Matters Most
A engaging learning experience with Lan Phan, Founder & CEO, Community of Seven
Core values are our fundamental beliefs. They are guiding principles that lead us in our daily lives, helping us distinguish between right and wrong. They help us determine if we are on the right path to fulfill our goals and drive our behaviors, actions and decisions.

Core values and purpose can extinguish burnout. Values inform everything we do. The more we stress the more we feel burned-out, the more we have moved away from our core values.

Join us for a deep-dive to identify and explore your core values, what they mean to you and how you can live it. The session will provide actionable steps to align purpose and growth to thrive as individuals and grow as leaders.

The session will be led by Lan Phan, Founder & CEO of Community of Seven. Lan is an accomplished executive who works with leading executives, founders, thought-leaders and change-makers to solve big business and societal problems.

Expert Workshop: Using Adaptive Learning for Unconscious Bias Training
A workshop with Manendra Bhugra, HR Consultant
Training solutions are often driven by the need to increase knowledge, enhance performance, promote wellness and ensure compliance to mitigate risk. But, how will you identify and assess your specific training needs? How will you discover the right mix of training interventions to meet your soft-skills needs? How will you find a scalable, engaging solution that results in long-lasting, measurable skills?

Adaptive learning is engaging, comprehensive and scalable, but it is not the complete solution, particularly when the goal is creating a truly collaborative workplace. Discover how CCA uses adaptive learning—paired with our extensive experience in human behavior change and a far-reaching package of data analytics—to target interventions to your training needs.

Learn more about how adaptive learning programs, data analytics and targeted interventions can help create the organizational culture you want.
