Please join this special lunch and program, sponsored by Trend Micro.

Global integration. New business models. Technology. Shifting demographics. Increasingly informed customers. According to research by IBM, these have been drivers of rapid change in our world—and this was prior to the pandemic which ramped ambiguity to levels never seen before. When faced with uncertainty, organizations and people become risk averse, reactionary, less open to additional change, and therefore less inclusive.

In this workshop, participants will explore this tension and learn specific practices to drive the inclusion needed for success in unpredictable times.

RSVP not required, however seating is limited.

A box lunch will be served
