The Conference Board Executive Vice President Rebecca Ray and ELI President and CEO Stephen Paskoff will be joined by Executive Director, Diversity and Inclusion for the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority Dr. Shelton Goode and Retired Chairman, President and CEO of Southern Company David Ratcliffe to discuss actions industry leaders are taking to build professional, inclusive, “speak-up” cultures and prevent cultural failures from leading to abuses of power, harassment, other misconduct, and organizational crisis.

Corporate value statements, “hot lines” and annual training programs alone are not enough; leaders must lead.

Join our panel of experts to learn:

  • The practical, effective steps senior leaders and their organizations are taking to build professional and inclusive cultures;
  • How to create a culture that helps ensure improper behavior does not occur; and
  • How to properly take action to address and resolve issues if they arise, while encouraging a “speak-up culture.”

Who Should Attend: Business leaders and C-Suite executives involved in managing workplace culture and anyone interested in how issues surrounding abuse of power affect their organization
