I thought I was a great leader and inclusive of all differences. Little did I know that my actions excluded 40% of the population. In this session, I discuss my own journey towards inclusion and allyship, and how it's helped me not only become a better person, but create more opportunities for myself and others. I developed a tool called the ARC Method to help others do the same and I'll share that with you during our conversation.

In this chat, I want you to walk away with:

  • Awareness of your own advantages and how they can be used as a leadership asset
  • Ways to be an ally in the workplace using the ARC Method of communication
  • Tools to recover from accidentally offending someone and how to speak up if you witness it.
