Intentional Integrity – How Smart Companies Can Lead an Ethical Revolution

Rob Chesnut

Rob Chesnut is Former Chief Ethics Officer

Trust is at an all-time low among employees globally, as leaders of companies are increasingly coming under fire for unethical, even illegal behavior. At the same time, the world needs companies to step up and take on greater responsibilities to solve the big, complex global problems. You can’t be successful in the 21st century without leaders that demonstrate integrity and build an environment of trust with their workforce and the communities where they operate. Airbnb’s former Chief Ethics Officer and the author of the new book “Intentional Integrity,” will share how Airbnb has taken on these challenges in a unique, human way that has its employees excited and proud of their commitment to integrity. Hear about the things your organization may be doing that probably aren’t moving the needle and what low cost steps you should be implementing this year to send the right message about your workplace environment.

The Missing Link in Gender Equity Efforts

Brad Johnson and David Smith

Brad Johnson is U.S. Naval Academy Professor & Faculty Associate
David Smith is Author and Associate Professor of Sociology

Women are at a persistent disadvantage in the workplace. Women deal with unequal pay, sexual harassment, lack of credit for their contributions, and more. And while many organizations say they are working to address gender equity, too many gender initiatives focus on how women should act and respond, largely leaving men out of the equation. This is a mistake. In this live, interactive session, gender equity experts David Smith and Brad Johnson will share current research evidence bearing on how men must engage to promote greater gender equity at work. They will offer tangible and actionable strategies to HR leaders on engaging men and building a self-sustaining culture of male allyship. Smith and Johnson will share best practices from their books, Athena Rising and Good Guys which show how men can partner with female colleagues to advance women’s leadership by breaking gender stereotypes, overcoming unconscious biases, developing talented women around them, and creating more productive work environments.
