The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is holding an event that may interest you. On September 29 at 4 p.m. there will be a Zoom presentation and discussion by Ritu Bhasin on "The Profound Importance of Authentic Leadership, Especially During a Crisis." Here is more information about the event:
The practice of cultivating authenticity is fundamental to creating an inclusive legal work environment — a culture where every team member feels they can bring their authentic self to work as much as possible. Given the tremendous uncertainty, stress and anxiety, blurred lines between work/home and fear of bias during this crisis, authentic leadership is more important now than ever before. A commitment to authentic leadership will help to unlock belonging, inclusion, psychological safety, empowerment and creativity among team members.
The learning objectives for this 75-minute elimination of bias program include the following:
Understand the link between inclusion, authenticity, belonging and empathy, especially during a crisis
Recognize authentic leadership and its connection to creating psychological safety at work
Learn how to address the fear of bias during a time of crisis
Acquire strategies for living, working and leading more authentically during this difficult moment
