14th Annual Diversity Workshop

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM

The Hilton Garden Inn - Levis Commons
6165 Levis Commons Blvd.
Perrysburg, OH 43551

Join us for NOHRA's 14th Annual Diversity conference as we present, "Leveraging the Power of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for Creativity and Innovation."

Diversity and inclusion (D&I) is a company’s mission, strategies, and practices to support a diverse workplace and leverage the effects of diversity to achieve a competitive business advantage. Diversity has to do with more than race or ethnicity. Diverse workplaces are composed of employees with a mix of characteristics including, but not limited to, age, gender, ethnicity, education, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation and physical abilities. Inclusion involves bringing together and leveraging this diversity and creating a collaborative, supportive, and respectful environment that accepts each individual's differences, embraces their strengths and provides opportunities for all staff to achieve their full potential.

A diverse and inclusive culture will positively affect creativity and innovation. It’s no longer something to consider having; a strong D&I strategy aligned with your organization’s business objectives is imperative.

At the 2019 Diversity & Inclusion Conference you will:
• Identify key components of emotional intelligence that can help us uncover our blind spots
• Learn how to incorporate the critical component of D&I into your organization’s corporate culture
• Discover how to make diversity and inclusion a top-to-bottom business strategy and not just an HR program
• Learn strategies for recruitment of non-traditional employees
• Identify strategies for creating an inclusive work environment for individuals with physical abilities

Human resources, D&I professionals, and business leaders will leave the conference armed with the best practices and actionable tools for implementing a D&I strategy that will build positive change in your workplace.

This conference registration includes access to Keynote speakers, breakout sessions, concurrent sessions, lunch, and continental breakfast.

  
 
 
Agenda:
8:00am-8:30am, Registration & Continental Breakfast

8:30am, Welcome

8:45am-9:45am, Dr. Kitty Brandal presents "Emotional Intelligence and Unconscious Bias: Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself!"

Emotions drive our behavior! Yet, experts have discovered that self-awareness (major component of Emotional Intelligence) is one of the most significant leadership deficits in the workplace today. Self-awareness can be an elusive concept; but, when we deliberately engage in awareness training, we can elevate our thought process regarding our own emotions, leading to uncovering our unconscious biases. Neuroscientists have revealed that we all experience unconscious bias; it’s a normal brain function. Yet, it can get in the way of team development, employee engagement, and even destroy the legacy that we want to design for ourselves.

9:45am-11:00am, Dr. Lillian Schumacher and Betty Jiminez present "Best Practices for Building a Sustainable Diversity and Inclusion Program"

This interactive session will include a panel discussion where the presenters will discuss their D&I journey. The discussion will center around the key factors that impacted the decision to implement a D&I strategy; tips for obtaining executive leadership buy-in; hurdles they encountered and how they overcame them. Attendees will also participate in table discussions to share key learnings and best practices.

11:00am-11:15am, Break

11:15am-12:00pm, Concurrent Sessions

Session 1: Kelly Elton presents, " Creating a More Inclusive Workplace for People with Disabilities"

People with disabilities represent 20 percent of the entire American population and they are far underrepresented in the workplace. But inclusion is something everyone can contribute to. This session will provide strategies for creating a more inclusive work environment for people with disabilities. Participants will receive guidance on how to create an inclusive workplace for people with disabilities. Attendees will walk away with resources that they can immediately implement in their workplace.

Session 2: Sarah Pawlicki, Esq., and Jim Yates, Esq., present, "Integrate D&I Into Your Hiring Strategy: Embrace Non-Traditional Candidates!"

People with disabilities represent 20 percent of the entire American population and they are far underrepresented in the workplace. But inclusion is something everyone can contribute to. This session will provide strategies for creating a more inclusive work environment for people with disabilities. Participants will receive guidance on how to create an inclusive workplace for people with disabilities. Attendees will walk away with resources that they can immediately implement in their workplace.

12:00pm, Lunch

12:30pm-1:30pm, Lunch Keynote- Kristi Stepp presents, "The Stories We Tell"

During this presentation, we will explore the stories we embrace and the foundational beliefs that supports those stories. We will explore how self-talk and the conversations we have with others positively or negatively impact the outcomes we desire. Finally, will challenge some beliefs that may prevent us from reaching our full potential.

1:30pm-1:45pm, Break

1:45pm-2:45pm, Daniel Juday presents, "Redefining Diversity and Exercising Inclusion"

There’s a lot of noise in our world today - a lot of voices from a lot of directions, telling us who to listen to, what to think, and how to act. We’re going to try to cut through some of that noise. In this session, participants will work to disrupt any misinformation about diversity, inclusion, and privilege. We’ll talk about what these words actually mean, and what they don’t, and will work together to find out what theymean to us. You can expect to have an opportunity to align your thinking around these terms in productive ways, and to connect these ideas to how you do your job every day, and who you do it with.

May 2019 General Membership Meeting - Toledo Area & Five County

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM


The Hilton Garden Inn
6165 Levis Commons Blvd.
Perrysburg, OH 43551

Join us Tuesday, May 28th, 2019, as Tony Moore presents "Becoming an Agent of Change." C-suites across the country are leading at a time of unprecedented volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. The rapid pace of change has rendered ineffective the traditional model of a single, visionary, leader. As a result, many organizations have become stuck as they try to apply old world solutions to new world problems.

Now more than ever, HR leaders must serve as agents of change; modeling collaboration, leveraging data, and leading the effort to create a change-ready culture. Infused with research, humorous stories, & real-life examples, “Becoming an Agent of Change” will equip HR leaders with the tools needed to lead the change process. (Eligible for Business Credits)
