The stats are staggering and while we have taken steps in the right direction, progress remains slow. Impacting real change will require a top down and bottom up approach.

  • How to deal with unconscious bias in yourself and team members;
  • How to measure, motivate and reward the best teams;
  • What types of metrics optimize innovation; and
  • What actionable steps you can take to immediately impact positive change for your team and organization.
