SocialHRCamp 2020 Virtual 4.0

As the world currently grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, notably how organizations transition to fully remote workforces, the HR community needs to play a huge role in supporting, enabling and leading organizations. We are launching 4 virtual events during the month of April 2020, that will focus on what matters most to organizations, right now. The themes will be:

  1. Employee Engagement (April 9, 2020)
  2. Innovating HR Practices During a Pandemic (April 16, 2020)
  3. Employee Mental Health and Wellbeing (April 23, 2020)
  4. Cultivating Continuing Workplace Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (April 30, 2020)

Sessions will be virtually lead and facilitated by thought-leaders, HR leaders and domain-specific experts. In traditional SocialHRCamp style, we will maximize audience engagement and learning.

All tickets are by donation and 100% of the proceeds will go to a collaborative initiative with Kits for a Cause to support front-line health workers with supplied to fight COVID-19.

The coronavirus is laying bias bare and exacerbating inequalities globally, both in our communities and our organizations. This unprecedented time has seen many of us doing a lot of fast thinking - we’re designing work-from-home plans, deciding how to modify performance reviews for the pandemic context, making layoffs, etc. If we don’t filter our plans and decisions through an equity lens, our organizations and our talent are going to pay the price in ways we can predict - increased pay gaps, deepening culture challenges, reduced diversity and inclusion - and in ways we can’t. Practices like the Equity Sequence™️ - a series of 5 simple equity-focused questions - can be learned in very little time and used to reduce bias and increase equity one question and one decision at a time.

When the Covid-19 crisis escalated, organizations around the world quickly began to press pause on ad hoc spending or work deemed “not essential” to the bottom line or to crisis responses. In many organizations, D&I budgets and initiatives were some of the earliest programmatic casualties. This has been true even in the many organizations that have long projected that D&I is core to business, culture, and success. Organizational strategist and Co-Founder of Tidal Equality, Anna Dewar Gully will share her perspectives on why D&I is dying during this pandemic and she will offer new ideas on how to bring an equity perspective back to life in your organization, even if your leadership has temporarily put it on the back burner.

The COVID-19 Pandemic and the demands of social distancing are taxing our businesses and the ability of leaders, colleagues and newly remote workers to interact effectively and productively. But as these and other economic stressors have mounted, little time has been spent considering how issues of diversity, equity and inclusion might be playing out in this new normal. In this short interactive session, Dr. Leeno Karumanchery, Chief Diversity Officer of MESH/diversity, will explore how strong leadership and communication are key to effective D&I in the age of Coronavirus.
