Event description

Description

The Executive Director Forum is a unique opportunity for EDs/CEOs to connect with their peers, share ideas, and learn from each other in a supportive environment. The format of the forum allows you to circulate through three discussion groups and interact with many of the executives in attendance as well as our outstanding discussion leaders.

Handling hierarchy in an organization with a social justice focus with Raleigh Watts, Executive Director | Country Doctors Community Health Clinics

Increasingly organizations are clarifying their approach and commitment to social justice and equity. How can you do this without signaling to staff an intention to deconstruct hierarchy in the organization? Staff can interpret equity to mean staff should have a voice in all decisions, be able to come to work whenever they want, or view directions from their supervisor as a “suggestions.” We will talk about strategies for executives to promote employee engagement and be open to staff feedback without destabilizing your authority as the ED/CEO.
