The COVID-19 pandemic has affected virtually every corner of our lives in ways that were unimaginable just a few short months ago. The implications of shelter-at-home orders, mandatory telecommuting, and travel restrictions have certainly touched all of us in a variety of ways. The restrictions placed on in-person gatherings have hit the meetings industry especially hard. Events of all sizes - from professional and college sports to small meetings - have been canceled. People are uneasy and worried about what's happening and are concerned about the effect this will have on their professional lives.

In this program, we'll cover several critically important topics including:

  • Strategies to resurrect your canceled event
  • Strengthening relationships
  • Understanding the long-term implications
  • The steps you need to take now

Attend this session to be more deliberate in your quest for self-discovery and examine your filters that support your comfort zone. Leave with a plan to raise your awareness of the biases we all have so you can be more productive at work.

You'll walk away with the knowledge to:
  • Define and identify factors impacting implicit bias
  • Examine personal implicit bias
  • Create a plan to raise personal consciousness about implicit bias
