Leading Through Adversity: Turning Challenges into Opportunities - Panel
Back Bay A & B
We’re living in a hashtag democracy - #MeToo, #TimesUp, #OscarsSoWhite, #NeverAgain. You’ve seen all the movements emboldened and empowered by social media, and the people at the center of those movements - or opposed to them - are your candidates, your employees, your customers. How, as leaders, do we navigate the social and cultural challenges that affect our world, our homes, and our businesses? This panel, led by Bullhorn’s Vinda Souza, will inspire and educate you with strategies from leaders who have faced or are helping people navigate adversity including gender and racial biases, sexual harassment, economic disenfranchisement, age bias, and much more.
