NHRC Employee Relations Round Table - 8-5-2020 Have a Conversation
Wednesday, August 05, 2020, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM CDT
Category: NHRC Employee Relations Round Table

The presentation explores the subject of race from a leadership perspective. By the end of the presentation, each person will have the opportunity to evaluate why they believe what they believe and how they want to use this new information going forward. The presentation gives the participants tools to begin the process of exploration about the topic of race and other controversial topics that often limit people in the workplace. When there is a void of information people fill that void with their own version of the story which usually is not favorable to the organization. The presentation also ties back to their organizational values as well as their own policies related to interactions between employees as well as interactions with their customers. We also touch on the limits of authority and responsibility that leaders have to enforce standards and define the organization's culture.
