Event description

Description

Join us to explore diversity and the future of work.

Join us for an un-conference on diversity and the future of work. This event will be designed by attendees. Anyone can propose a workshop or discussion format. Attendees will come together to explore issues at the intersection of diversity, rapidly developing technologies, a growing need for meaning and purpose in our work, and more access to novel solutions than ever before.

We will explore work beyond the traditional or currently common structures. Working together effectively requires people to create psychological safety, disagree without rancor, and move quickly. These adaptive skills move work toward collaboration and the more effective collective impact needed across organizational and institutional boundaries.


What is an un-conference?

An un-conference is an event where the agenda is set by the attendees on the day of the event. Want to learn more? Read How To Run An Un-Conference.


Diversity and the Future of Work

The problems are pervasive. More cases of sexual harassment, in fields ranging from journalism to government, are becoming public with increasing regularity. And the issues range well beyond gender and include discrimination related to race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, and disability (to name just a few). Companies should foster environments that encourage dissenting viewpoints, and it starts with listening. Creating inclusive spaces where employees feel heard, where people can bring their full selves to work, where they thrive.

Diversity and inclusion can become over-complicated buzz words, but we believe with the right prioritization, simple solutions can be found. A diversity of perspectives can create higher-performing teams. A Responsive company is one that allows its employees to show up as themselves, to express themselves—even those parts we tend to keep hidden. When that happens, the impossible becomes real.


What's Responsive?

A movement is growing that seeks work beyond traditional organizational structures, pure profit motives, and social norms that lack heart. Organizations today must adapt to both rapidly changing technologies and members who increasingly desire more meaningful roles.

Responsive brings together leading practitioners in organizational design and human development. These unique events are designed for active collaboration and ideas-exchange among thinkers and doers who are studying and applying "future of work" principles within organizations.
