*CULTIVATE COURAGE: HOW COURAGEOUS CONVERSATIONS BUILD CULTURES PEOPLE CELEBRATE, NOT TOLERATE
Think your culture is perfect and your employees are all happy and content? It might be time to take a second look. Gathered over the past six years of doing cultural audits, Antoinetta has seen just how different leadership’s understanding of their organizational culture can be from the reality of employees’ experiences. By facilitating courageous conversations with employees and their leadership, Antoinetta led many of those same organizations forward. Sharing her valuable findings from that work in this talk, Antoinetta is encouraging more organizations to create equitable and inclusive spaces for these courageous conversations with the goal of moving them from courageous to commonplace.
Audiences will learn:
Over the last two years, a lot of organizations announced publicly they were making DEI a strategic priority. However, many ended up treating it more like a craft project by DIYing this critical work internally with no experts to guide them through the process and ensure long-term impact and growth. Driven by her belief that cookie cutter DEI solutions don’t work, Certified Diversity Professional (CDP)® Antoinetta Mosely offers a different way forward for organizations who truly want their DEI efforts to make an impact on their employees, culture and bottom-line.
Audiences will learn:
Inspired by Antoinetta’s personal experience of being called an “overachiever”, this talk explores the traps of being negatively labeled in the workplace and what’s really behind these microaggressions. For individuals, particularly those in underrepresented groups, moving beyond biased labels and focusing on impactful leadership is needed to prevent burnout, navigate unhelpful limiting beliefs in the workplace and keep individuals operating in their zone of genius at organizations that value their talents.
