Virtual Summit Boardroom Sessions

Adapting to the New Reality of Leadership

Leadership is a skill that needs to be honed, whether leading the C-suite or in an entry-level role. With more than 90% of HR leaders looking to implement a hybrid work model, what’s the best way to adapt to the new work environment in a sustainable way?

Join this session as HR leaders discuss:

  • Fostering leadership development and team connection
  • Challenges in leadership with a hybrid workforce
  • Strategies to ensure culture and connection are in place across all teams

Shifting Strategies for an Evolving Employee Landscape

Connectivity has never been more essential as companies work to bridge the gap in hybrid work environments. The leadership provided by managers plays a vital role in maintaining a sense of belonging, whether employees are returning to the office or continuing to work remotely.


Join this session as HR leaders discuss:

  • How to create a motivational atmosphere for employees in remote and hybrid work environments
  • Challenges in promoting and building culture with new hires as well as permanent and temporary employees
  • Strategies to build on engagement in the "new normal"


Virtual Summit Keynote Sessions

Skills, Not Credentials – The New Currency of Work

Upskilling is essential when you’re preparing an organization to take on the future because skills are the key to driving learning relevancy and personalization. CHROs need to bring learning and talent together to create a holistic career experience. In this session, you will learn how to create an innovative and agile workforce that stays resilient amid the most unpredictable challenges through upskilling.

In this session, you will explore:

  • Why organizations should evolve their focus from credentials to skills
  • How skills influence career development at the organization and individual level
  • The importance of clarifying skills vs. competencies and creating a taxonomy

Enhancing the Approach to DE&I

Throughout 2020, DE&I programs flourished. But to sustain these efforts, leadership must continue to partner across the C-suite and take a thoughtful approach to addressing important endeavors like supporting social justice causes and increasing diversity in all levels of the organization. As DE&I programs remain a top priority, how should HR leaders ensure they stay relevant and forward-thinking?

Join this session as HR leaders discuss:

  • Strategies to meet the aspirational goals of a robust DE&I program
  • Methods of communicating and demonstrating commitment to your workforce
  • The future of DE&I programs and trends in supporting social justice causes
