Content & Communication
Using Written Communication To Reduce Stress In the (Virtual or Onsite) Workplace
Written communication gets a bad rap. It is time-consuming and requires forethought, but it is still the most effective method of communication. The future of work in a post-COVID era will require team members, managers, and executives to communicate effectively. As a two-time author and ForbesWomen Senior Contributor for over five years, Christine Michel Carter is no stranger to written communication. In this talk, she discusses the importance of written communication, and how to specifically format professional content, from emails to presentations and beyond.

Getting Rid Of Impostor Syndrome, Summit Syndrome, And Burnout
Summit syndrome is the act of “chasing an unattainable corporate high.” Summit syndrome spawned from impostor syndrome in the workplace looks like the unnecessary acquisition of advanced degrees and board memberships and self-destructive behavior. It’s not just thriving on the challenge; it’s looking for a rush (or high) from being able to push yourself beyond your limit. We’ll discuss why so many professionals are moving from impostor syndrome to summit syndrome, and how (through take-away points, data, and case studies) burnout can be avoided.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
How Managers Can Help Women Stay in the Workforce
One in four women is contemplating downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce. For working mothers who’d like to stay in the workforce, nearly nine out of ten say they’d leave a job for another opportunity that better supports their work and life considerations. More importantly, for any company trying to secure its competitive advantage, this is “make or break” time. Diversity of talent and expertise is in question, since diversity breeds innovation and subsequently, annual revenue. In addition, we’ll discuss how organizations can reset the playing field for women in the workplace, from internal job descriptions to leveraging newly available workforce resources.

Why Ignoring Women Of Color Is Actually Harmful To Your Bottom Line
67% of Black women often find themselves in a leadership position, despite having a leadership title. But once a multicultural female professional is onboarded, the absence of effective diversity management can make them feel subject to unconscious bias and discrimination. They begin expressing feelings of being patronized, unaccepted and tolerated. Rightfully so. Besides, this is a huge problem since diversity drives innovation, and Black women have proven time and time again that we are innovators. We’ll discuss how ignoring these women affects business objectives and how peers and superiors can recognize their talents.
