Sophia has partnered with Chapman & Co. Leadership Institude to provide the content, energy, ideas and actionable take-aways for the 2020 Aspiring Servant Leaders Conference. The Include Workshop was designed for meaningful interaction and sustainable change. It is meant for employees and leaders at all levels.
Training people on differences and biases is one thing. The Aspiring Servant Leaders Conference this year, in partnership with Chapman & Co. Leadership Institute, will focus on practical, long-term solutions to creating more inclusive relationships, inclusive teams and inclusive cultures. We will focus on learning behaviors that drive connections and relationships. Relationships between people are at the core of inclusive, productive work environments, regardless of the demographic make-up of your people. It’s in relationships where trust, understanding and empathy thrive.
