Event Details

We know that companies and organizations perform best when they are able to activate and utilize the full skills, talents, ideas, and energy of every single employee. We also know that results in every sense are improved when teams are made up of and proactively include people across all dimensions (ethnicity, religion, gender, race, age and sexual orientation.) This interactive session is open to everyone at work, including white men, who often see themselves and are seen as outside of the diversity and inclusion conversations.

We will explore the impact of US Business culture on people and partnerships in organizations. In particular, the focus of Brave Partnerships; Better Companies will be on skills for building better partnerships and for leading through:

  • Examination of group power dynamics at work;
  • Better understanding of the link between group conditioning around race, gender, and other areas, privilege systemic advantage, and unconscious bias;
  • Practicing courage and having important conversations across difference, even when they are hard;
  • Learning about the tangible benefits of inclusion in all forms on people and organizations;
  • Elevating self-awareness of your next steps in partnership across difference.

Moe Carrick and Jim Morris


has 30 years of experience working and leading in purpose-driven consulting organizations. At WMFDP, he directs and supports our team of consultants and facilitators, as they deliver one-of-a-kind world-class services to WMFDP clients, globally. He’s also responsible for the integrity and excellence of program delivery, curriculum development and innovation, and instructional design of WMFDP’s programs. Jim began his journey with WMFDP in 2000 when he attended his first White Men’s Caucus and began working with WMFDP in addition to leadership development and coaching practice.  The Caucus had a profound impact on Jim; and he began looking for ways to blend his work with WMFDP’s experiential approach to engaging white men in developing their own courageous leadership practices. He’s been an adjunct faculty at Duke Leadership and Training Associates, Virginia Tech, The Executive Forum and The American Leadership Forum.  He is the author of The Five Insights of Enduring Leaders, a book that teaches how to develop leadership traits, to uncover and enhance them in others and to inspire others to changes

the world.


Mom, daughter, gardener, wife, ex-wife, adventurer, entrepreneur, and consultant Moe Carrick believes that people make organizations great. Companies large and small are routinely brought to their knees by the so-called "soft stuff” of people problems–as anyone know who has tried, this work is hard. As a facilitator, protagonist, consultant, entrepreneur, author, employer, and relentless optimist, Moe believes that people can and should thrive at work and that when they do, organizations succeed. With over 30 years of work in organizations on issues of partnership, leadership, inclusion, strategy and culture Moe believes that rigorous self-awareness, courage, honest dialogue, active involvement, and empathy are fundamentals to building full partnerships based on trust and curiosity. As a white, US-born, heterosexual woman, Moe strives to use her privilege with grace to surface assumptions that interfere with teams and to explore systemic patterns.

Moe holds a Master’s Degree in OD, is a Certified Daring Way™/Dare to Lead™ Facilitator,  a Coach, and administrator of a variety of tools in her trade. She is also a Senior Consultant with White Men as Full Diversity Partners (WMFDP,) the market leaders in including white men in the critical conversations required to sustain truly inclusive cultures.

Moe is passionate about the role work plays in creating meaning for our lives and in the role business can play as a force for good. She is a regular blogger on topics related to people at work and is a contributor to Conscious Company Magazine. Maven House Press released her first book, bestseller FIT MATTERS: How to Love Your Job, with co-author Cammie Dunaway in 2017. Her second book, Bravespace: Creating Workplaces Fit for Human Life, releases in June 2019.

Moe protects time for love, running, apple butter, fiction, and a good sleep.
