Plenary Session 5
Faith at Work: How to Tackle Tough Diversity Issues

Featuring:
John Dorland,
Senior Associate, Greybridge Malkam

Diversity initiatives typically address 3 distinct areas: legal obligation and compliance, employee engagement and talent management, and improving the performance of existing talent.

Performance improvement leads to questions about how to tap into the “whole person” so their goals and aspirations at work align with those outside. Perhaps even more crucial is how to create a workplace environment that optimizes collaboration.

This brings faith and spirituality into the discussion, intensely personal issues that can cause employee misunderstanding and conflict. To capitalize on all aspects of an individual and their potential contribution to a team, we must understand faith’s impact on their approach to work and on their co-workers.

In this highly interactive session, John Dorland will use a number of case studies to help you explore the dynamics of faith and belief in your workplace and your personal response to it.
