The Future of Leadership: Power of Organizational Structure
Active Brainstorming Session + Panel Discussion
Sunday, March 3, 2019, ASU Washington, DC

The Future of Leadership: Transforming Organizational Culture is a hands-on workshop and panel discussion of organizational leaders who are grappling with how to “operationalize” inclusivity. How do we move beyond the buzzwords? Is there a way to move away from a zero-sum game model, so instead of “your gain is my loss” we find a way to create excellence without exclusivity? You are invited to join an active brainstorm session and hear panelists describe their recommendations for building an organizational culture of inclusivity. We hope to use our collective wisdom to develop meaningful concrete steps—actions that we can all bring back to our own organizations to continue building inclusivity.
Part 1: Engage with an active brainstorming session that will describe “what is” and create “what could be” for future organizations.
Part 2:  A guided conversation about the power of culture and leadership from five brilliant minds that are succeeding in driving real positive change and creating a better future.
