This interactive strategy session reviews Case Studies from working with executives in healthcare, finance and sports around recruiting and advancing women with research to illuminate the impact on the next generation workforce and consumer segments (Millennials and Gen Z).
This workshop is centered around the concept that being an upstander is about standing up and speaking out on behalf of girls and women. Teaching girls and women how to be an upstander includes strategies for conflict management, intervening against gender biased behaviors and necessitates the development of empathy skills and emotional intelligence. Joan’s approach to Upstand(HER) behavior aims to first help girls recognize when someone is hurt by acknowledging the situation, demonstrating empathy, and using emotional intelligence to proactively speak up and out. This talk is geared towards both younger audiences (middle school, high school and college aged women) AND those who work directly with girls and young women as teachers, counselors, mentors and managers.
In today’s multi-generational workplace there is often a lot of mixed messages and challenges amongst managers and early career professionals. This workshop covers the seismic shifts that influenced each generation’s expectations about work and advancement to help participants crack the code on relationships, productivity and retention.
