AGENDA
NOVEMBER 05 - 06, 2019
WESTIN NEW YORK AT TIMES SQUARE,NEW YORK, NY

November 04, 2019

Despite the recent movements such as #MeToo,  #Time’s Up,  #BlackLivesMatter and multiple headlines in the news of some prominent leaders using tactics of humiliations, harassment and bulling to assert their power, it remains unclear what the solution should be.  What is clear is that the status quo is not an option and that employees, investors, and consumers are demanding change.  We believe that ensuring structural inclusion in talent management can be part of such solution.  Building inclusive talent management processes, practices and systems can reduce the dependency on individual leaders’ preferences and biases and establish more objective ways of building truly diverse talent pipeline.

During this workshop we will apply the principles of “Inclusive Design” to reimagine succession management.  Inclusive Design is an innovative methodology that looks at inclusion as a design challenge rather than simply culture change.  In the workshop we will define what equality and equity mean in terms of succession management and help you discover ways your succession management process can by design promote diversity.  

More specifically we will:

  • Compare and contrast a typical succession process from a “default user” vs. an “extreme user” perspective to unearth structural inequities and opportunities for impact.  An extreme user is a person or segment of people who are typically excluded from the process or even the work itself.  By viewing succession management through the life of an “extreme user” we can develop a uniquely impactful prototype succession process.
  • Challenge the assumptions in typical talent reviews, high potential identification and critical role fulfillment to uncover unknown options.  For example, how could self- or peer-nominations impact they typical manager-led high potential identification process?
  • Share leading global leading practices in succession management to uncover actionable ideas that will impact the diversity of your succession pipeline

Speakers Include:

  • Alina Polonskaia, Senior Client Partner; Global Leader, Diversity & Inclusion, Korn Ferry
  • Carolyn Vavrek, Senior Client Partner, Korn Ferry
