Instilling Trust: Creating Respect in the Workplace

Thursday, March 30, 2023
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Inclusion in the workplace goes beyond just “including” or adopting diverse talent into your business model. To create an authentic culture of trust and respect where everyone feels safe to share and be who they are, a commitment and willingness to understand and empathize with others’ life experiences and perspectives must be sewn into the fabric of the organization. It also requires an openness to continually challenge one’s own perceptions while embracing proactive change. Having psychological safety means instilling an environment of comfortability where individuals, especially those from often-targeted communities, can work and have honest conversations without fear of retaliation.

Join us virtually to better understand the importance of cultivating psychological safety in the workplace. Get a clearer view of the barriers that instigate intolerance and their damaging effect on the office culture. Then learn to break those barriers to create an environment where employees feel comfortable in holding dialogues about positive and negative events and experiences that are connected to their identities. Gain insight into the dos and don’ts of sustaining a respectful workplace built to support psychological safety, such as dealing with mega-threats, relational bridging, and addressing issues privately.

Speakers to Date:
Lloyd Freeman, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney
Tonya Ladipo, Founder & CEO, The Ladpio Group
Giovan Lane, Global Talent and DEI Manager, GSK
