Presentation: It's not just what you say, but how you say it. 

By: Dr. Tracy Volz

Have you ever attended a work-related event and felt uneasy about approaching people or introducing yourself? Have you had the experience of colleagues interrupting you when you're speaking in meetings or watched in stunned silence when someone else is credited with your brilliant idea? Is your communication style projecting a positive, professional ethos or subtly sabotaging your credibility? This interactive session will enhance your awareness of how to read and respond to verbal and non-verbal cues, explain how to adjust your body language to suit the situation, and give you an opportunity to practice these skills.

Keynote: Diversifying Diversity: Rethinking how we create a truly inclusive workplace

By: Raquel Tamez, CEO of SHPE, Inc.

The modern workplace is more diverse than it’s ever been. But how do we ensure that these efforts translate into better inclusivity? That everyone is not just seen and counted, but heard and understood? To get there, we must learn to think outside the box by creating programs and initiatives that inform, inspire, and empower. At SHPE, we’re partnering with organizations across the industry gamut to reimagine how we engage and encourage traditionally underserved populations. All with the goal of creating a truly 21st century workforce — one that not only reflects today’s world, but helps shape the one to come. 

 

Cost: Free admission for SHPE paid members

Cafecito and lunch will be provided
