While examples of outward biases dominate the headlines, it’s the subtler ones that make workplaces less inclusive. And it’s not just what we see that can impact our decision making — an individual’s name, address, or even alma mater can trigger biases among recruiters, managers, and peers. We’ll cover how you can train all three, including yourself, to recognize unconscious bias and take proactive steps to overcome it.


In our post-COVID work world, we have team members and groups that are essential workers, rotating in-office, and fully remote. And they are all feeling disconnected and unsure. In this panel, we’ll look at how to keep a collaborative, vibrant culture alive with all the restrictions and limitations of our new work world.

Work doesn’t happen in a vacuum. At a time when so much remains uncertain, focus and motivation aren’t easy to come by for even the most stoic among us. So how do you lead with empathy while maintaining a culture of high performance? This panel will address how HR teams and managers can balance accommodation with motivation through challenges that transcend work.


Culture is what makes companies “best places to work” in great times and holds them together during tough times. But when so much about the world (and work) remains in flux, it’s the organizations that embrace uncertainty who seem to fair the best. So how do you make adaptability part of your company’s culture? HR experts weigh in on what adaptability really means in the context of the employee experience and how to develop it.


Creating more inclusive companies means that DE&I should be part of every aspect of your HR strategy, including learning and development. So what’s important for L&D teams to know as they try to make their strategy more mindful of inclusivity and belonging? We talk to two seasoned L&D leaders about how they keep DE&I in mind as they plan their programs.


“Crisis management” probably wasn’t in your job description last year. While HR teams’ to-do lists have grown, their budgets and headcount haven’t. You’ll need to partner with managers, leverage technology, and reshuffle priorities to meet the call. In this session, veteran leaders will share their experiences, advice, and HR “hacks” for teams not only looking to keep up, but grow in the months ahead.


The world is at an inflection point. In America, the pandemic is shining a bright light on existing vulnerabilities in the healthcare system, particularly the disparities experienced by poor and black and brown people. Compounding this challenge is the widespread recognition of systemic racism triggered by the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Together, these events are causing us to ask some serious questions about who we are and what we value. While governments have a role in addressing these challenges, corporate responsibility must take on a new meaning if America has any hope to be fairer, more just, and more human.

In this session, Dr. Conrad will outline how we got to this point and what it will take to move us towards a more diverse, equitable and inclusive future.

RfH Speaks Winner

What’s the measure of a “great place to work?” Even before COVID-19, a comprehensive benefits package was essential for recruiting and retaining top talent, but the pandemic is changing what employees are looking for when it comes to employer benefits. Benefits that focus on financial wellness, help navigate the unexpected, and strengthen social connection will be increasingly prioritized in “the new normal” world of work.


In the new climate, values have taken on a new and larger role in helping determine and build culture. There are huge debates going on within companies about both inward-facing values about what they hold dear internally and outward-facing values around the community and a company’s place in it. How does a People Team help enable those conversations while also helping their companies navigate to the right message for both?


Ramping up learning and development programs can be a challenge even when you have everyone in the same office — it’s extra difficult now that teams are working from home or distributed around the world. We’ll hear HR leaders share the tactics they turn to keep managers and employees growing even during tumultuous times.
