#MeToo has highlighted the uncomfortable fact that we haven’t moved the needle on gender practices as much as we’ve thought or hoped.  How do we, as organizational leaders, structure our practices so that we are modeling and promoting equal and ethical treatment for all?  How do we have generative conversations that strengthen our workplaces?  How do we set up BOTH genders for success?   Kristi Spaethe will share insights & recommendations gleaned from their work as organizational change agents to help you strengthen your organization’s approach to this important reality. 


Our agenda includes:

·         Overview of #metoo and Other Recent Movements

·         Effects in the Workplace

·         Discussion on How We Move Forward on Gender Equity in the Workplace

·         Protecting our Business (Proactive and Reactive address)

Learning objectives:

·         Realization of the impact of the movements on our workplaces

·         Understanding of the inequities that remain

·         What actions we can take to address those inequities

·         How to create an even environment

·         How to react to sexual harassment in the workplace
