As workplaces move to re-open, it’s not just be a matter of “un-flipping” the remote workplace switch from last March.

On Tuesday, April 27, a whole host of amazing and awesome humans are convening in conversation to discuss challenging questions like:

  • How can I maintain a sense of community, connection, and shared purpose as I manage different kinds of organizational cultures: fully onsite, fully remote, and a hybrid approach?
  • How can I employ and invent different organizing frameworks to share more power and equity in my organization’s decision making?
  • COVID-related employment law seems to change daily. What’s legal, and what’s not, when it comes to COVID and these quickly evolving employment laws?
  • How can I intentionally approach reopening my workplace with environmental impacts in mind?
  • What new policies, practices, and procedures should I institute to support everyone who works with us? And,
  • How can I help co-create a future where everyone thrives?

Have you been wondering about any of these things too? Well, you’re in luck!

Register to attend the summit.

Sessions include:

  • A Year in the Life [Opening Mainstage] What have we learned this past year? How can we use this knowledge and experience to craft thriving workplaces?
  • Alternate Power & Decision Making Models [Breakout session] There are different ways of structuring organizations in whole and in parts. We’ll explore ways to share power, decision making, and ownership.
  • Mental Health & Well-Being Amid a Global Pandemic [Breakout session] How can we and our organizations acknowledge and support the well-being of everyone as we continue to live and work through a global pandemic?
  • Employment Law & COVID [Breakout session] When it comes to providing a workplace free from COVID hazards, what’s required and what’s not? What’s legal and what’s not?
  • Intentionality & Environmental Impacts [Breakout session] This past year saw most work travel completely eliminated. How can we reopen in intentional ways that center our impact on the planet and each other?
  • Workplace Policies for Hybrid Org Arrangements [Breakout session] How do we create and maintain equitable policies and practices when our team works across differing onsite and remote arrangements?
  • New(ish) to Organizational Anti-Racism Work [Breakout session] Task forces, caucuses, book clubs, consultants? So many options. We’ll discuss different approaches to doing “the work” in our organizations.
  • Into The Future! [Closing Mainstage] What does it look like to co-create a future where everyone thrives? We’ll talk with people who are experimenting and iterating towards this future.

See you at the summit!
