Keynote

Engaging All Allies: Moving from Awareness to Advocacy

Thursday, May 16
6-7 p.m., The Weidner
Keynote Objectives

The latest McKinsey research highlights the realities (and myths) hindering women in the workplace. Lack of flexibility, corporate culture and attitudes, microaggressions, and the broken rung (which creates a persistent underrepresentation of women, particularly women of color)–must be fixed if senior leaders want to retain the best talent and halt inequitable outcomes.

Jeffery Tobias Halter’s keynote, Engaging All Allies: Moving From Awareness to Advocacy, is designed to help attendees create a deeply internalized approach to equity, with a lens of intersectionality and a sense of urgency that will drive competitive advantage in the workplace and marketplace.

Keynote Takeaways
  • Examine “The Future of Work” along with the shifting workforce demographics of age and race and their impact on advancing women and other underrepresented groups.
  • Explore the barriers that women and other marginalized groups face in the workplace.
  • Discuss the four barriers and the solutions to active advocacy.
  • Prepare attendees to create 30-, 60- and 90-day action plans that put their learnings into immediate practice

Allyship may be one of the most important reasons people decide to stay or go.

Become a
Better Ally

"Allyship today must include everyone. While men still remain the most critical cohort to becoming better allies (as they still comprise 70% of organizational leadership), the latest McKinsey report points out that white women and women of color have significantly different experiences in the workplace. The same can be said for people of color, LGBTQ+, and other marginalized or underrepresented groups. Simply put, EACH of US needs to be better allies…to everyone."

Day 2: Members Only

Workshop

Creating Your Personal Success Strategies for Advancement

Friday, May 17
9-10:30 a.m.

Do men and women view leadership differently? What are the things men think about women, but never say about women? If you work for a man, chances are he is evaluating you through a male paradox of what leadership should look like.

Jeffery Tobias Halter will lead an interactive discussion and strategy session to ensure attendees:

  • Learn how men and women define and value leadership competencies differently.
  • Explore unconscious gender bias that men carry that inadvertently hold women back.
  • Examine the "double-bind" dilemma women face regarding performance, image and exposure.
  • Leave with a personal action plan to ignite your career.

This program is capped at 50 people. If interested, please email the Institute.
