2024 Signature Seminar

Embracing Generational Diversity

Featuring Chris DeSantis, Author of Why I Find You Irritating: Navigating Generational Friction at Work

May 7, 2024 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

The workforce has evolved to include four distinct generational groups. Therein lies the challenge and the opportunity. Each generational cohort comes of age during distinct environmental circumstances which shape motivations, expectations, and workplace behaviors. Join Chris DeSantis in conversation with DFA President and CEO, Manar Morales, discussing the framework outlined in his book for understanding generational perspectives, clarifying the distinctions between actual and perceptual differences, when it makes sense to talk about these differences, and when it doesn’t. Additionally, learn what organizations need to do to embrace a new generation of workers, Gen Z, and how they can best be engaged and retained in a hybrid workplace.

This event is open to all individuals at member organizations.

We’ve Got This! Unlocking Belonging in Organizations

Featuring Ritu Bhasin, CEO, bhasin consulting inc.

December 12, 2023, 1:00pm ET

Many team members feel constant pressure to mask and curate who they are at work—to perform as someone they’re not rather than be who we are. And it strikes at their ability to belong. But, as leaders, by cultivating psychological safety, trust, inclusion, and creativity in how we work, we can unlock belonging in our organizations for everyone. In this practical, research-driven session, we will cover:

  • The key pillars for unlocking belonging in your organization as a leader
  • How to leverage the Three Selves Framework™ in how you lead and manage teams and stakeholders
  • How to create cultures that are rooted in belonging, psychological safety, trust, inclusion, innovation, and empowerment
  • Leadership strategies for fostering empathy, authenticity, and trust

This program has been approved by the Board on Continuing Legal Education of the Supreme Court of New Jersey for 1.0 hour of total CLE credit. Of these, 1.0 qualify as hours of credit for diversity, inclusion and elimination of bias (BCLE Reg. 302:1).
