Building Resilience and a Positive Mindset in Uncertain Times
The COVID-19 Global Pandemic has created stress and anxiety in all of us, even the most resilient of us. In a time of crisis like this, the most important factor for success is mindset. Managing mindset impacts everything we do from parenting to our professional responsibilities. This webinar will provide tips on how to:

Change your mindset
Switch from fear and anxiety to gratitude and resilience
Harness that positive mindset to improve your productivity and emotional wellbeing.
Recalibrate your personal and professional lives post-pandemic.
Identifying and Uncovering “Blindspots” During Times of Crisis
Historically, when organizations are faced with times of crisis, it has been caregivers, women and diverse professional who are most likely to be adversely affected. For example, due to unconscious bias, a supervisor may underestimate the amount of work a parent is able to complete during the COVID-19 crisis and therefore take away an important project. This webinar will provide attendees with insights into:
The importance of maintaining a diverse team;
How to identify and address unconscious bias;
How to prevent unconscious bias;
How to communicate opportunities equally;
How to monitor work allocation;
The importance of individual check-ins during crisis.
Championing Inclusion during Uncertain Times
During the pandemic when most employees are working at home, many individuals may feel isolated and/or overwhelmed with childcare, eldercare or other family responsibilities. It’s essential that leadership maintain a culture of inclusion and openness. Parents and diverse individuals must feel connected and supported at these times. This webinar will provide best practices on:
The value diverse employees bring to the team;
How to address the challenges employees may be facing;
Creating Affinity groups;
Communicating with all employees;
Asking for & providing feedback on inclusion efforts.

Leave with insights into the prevalence of bias during times of crisis;
Learn how to be more sensitive to bias and stigma and prevent their occurrence;
Gain the tools to uncover and address the bias;
Understand that while these issues often surface during times of crisis, the need for these skills will be relevant throughout their careers.
