Ep. 26 - Engaging Men & Leaders in Gender Balance

In this episode of The Forum Podcast, Avivah Wittenberg-Cox (20-first), argues that women alone should not be leading the topic of gender balance in organizations. But how do we engage men and leaders in gender balancing businesses when the topic of gender balance is often framed as being created for women by women, leading to failed engagement by men and accountability by men, or even worse, creating divisive segmentation within men of a, “you’re either with us or against us” mentality? Engaging men isn’t about getting women to become ever more congratulatory about men who ‘get it.’ Getting men to embrace balance requires leaders skilled at making the link between balance and business. When they buy it, and are skilled at selling it, everyone gets on board. Over the past decade, Avivah Wittenberg-Cox, CEO of 20-first, has worked on gender balance with 43 companies, across 32 countries, facilitated 231 debates with over 3,000 executives. She’s worked in every possible sector, from finance and energy to tech and consumer goods. Here’s what she learned and some of the questions she’ll explore: Why is gender balance so often framed as a women’s issue, discussed by and among women? How do we engage men and leaders in gender balancing businesses? Where do companies stand today and what’s the next step? Learning Outcomes Understand the common pitfalls to avoid and why they remain so popular Introduce the concept of ‘gender bilingualism’ as a management competency Outline ways of reframing gender balance more strategically and inclusively Avivah is joined by Tim Hollins, Director and Senior Consultant at 20-first.

Ep. 25 Building the Emerging Economy on a Diversity and Inclusion Platform

In this episode of The Forum Podcast, Joel Hodroff and Thomas Fisher (University of Minnesota), explore opportunities for the rising DEI movement within business and community organizations to transform disparities and disempowerment at their economic roots. Modern society is operating at a fraction of our potential. No one is to blame, because we all inherited the current system based upon scarcity, win-lose competition over money, and a grow-or-die business imperative. Too many people are left out of our economy, today, with their talent and capacities unrecognized and under-utilized. This is a historic opportunity for the rising DEI movement within business and community organizations to transform disparities and disempowerment at their economic roots. This new approach empowers frontline DEI practitioners with systemic solutions and new financial tools and resources. Learning Outcomes Learn how to mobilize untapped business-community wealth and productive capacity Learn social entrepreneurial design principles that drive cooperation rather than competition Learn why blame is the enemy of creative solutions and how to break the left-versus-right economic stalemate

As next-generation leaders continue to define our world, bridging the gap between generations is vital for ensuring strong talent pipelines, mutual knowledge sharing, collaborative innovation and sustainable growth.

In this session, we will draw on the insights of Inclusion NextWork’s community of rising leaders across backgrounds, geographies, industries, and experience levels to explore new ways in which our generation engages with IDEAS.

Ep. 21 Building a Healthy Occupational Identity While Working in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In this episode of The Forum Podcast, Johnanna Ganz, Ph.D. (J. Ganz Consulting) explores occupational identity (OI), and how you can develop and sustain a healthier connection to your job. Most people do not know what occupational identity (OI) is or how it impacts every single part of our lives. This impact is significantly amplified when the work is more than "just a job." Many working in careers focused on social and cultural change view their careers as an extension of their beliefs and core values; their occupations are a key part of how they express what matters to them. Yet, many professionals do not know how to name or manage the connection between the sense of self and the working world. An inability to name and manage OI exposes workers and agencies to risks. Yet, well-managed OI reduces risks and leads to healthier individuals and organizations. This podcast is designed for listeners ready to enhance their DEI work through understanding and applying occupational identity. Learning Outcomes Listeners will be able to name and explore the concept of occupational identities Listeners will identify 2-3 risks associated with unmanaged occupational identity Listeners will select 1-2 concrete strategies on how to continue to develop and sustain a healthier connection to their jobs and/or apply content to DEI work.

Ep. 20 Culture Clash: Can Latino Culture Identity and Corporate Culture Be Reconciled?

Presenter: Andrés Tapia, Korn Ferry Corporate America says it wants more Latinos in manager and leadership roles. Latino professionals in growing numbers aspire to achieve these leadership positions. Yet what should be mutually reinforcing trends to speed up advancement are instead two forces increasingly in conflict due to deep differences between corporate culture and Latino culture. If corporations really want to create more Latino leaders, they must go beyond the necessary public declarations in support of diversity and take a zero-tolerance stance toward overt bias. This requires facing up to unconscious cultural biases that can negatively affect the evaluation of both the performance and the potential of Latino talent and generate work environments that are unattractive to many Latinos. In this session, Latino talent expert Andrés Tapia will highlight key findings based on their newly published book, “Auténtico: The Definitive Guide to Latino Career Success.” Specifically, the session will demonstrate why corporate America is totally unprepared for the future workforce that will have an increasingly Latino identity. Numerous examples will be provided on how corporate cultural norms are often at odds with common aspects of Latino heritage and behavioral tendencies. Finally, solutions will be shared on how to create corporate cultures that are more inclusive towards Latinos and which help to create the conditions that will nurture Latino career advancement. Learning Outcomes Recognize the importance of Hispanic heritage and Latino Culture in shaping the workplace behavior of Latino professionals Compare Latino Culture against Corporate America Culture across 6 key cultural dimensions Develop solutions to the Latino and Corporate Culture Clash.

Ep. 17 A Bridge Between Whiteness and Belonging

In this episode of The Forum Podcast, Dr. Jacqueline Battalora, Ph.D., J.D, offers a foundation of understanding around the nuanced account of the invention of the human category "white" in law. The session begins with an accessible and nuanced account of the invention of the human category "white" in law. People with low levels of melanin in the skin pre-existed the invention but they did not conceived of themselves as white nor is there a single reference in law to them as whites. This session offers a foundation of understanding that will bring us together through shared knowledge rooted in law and history. The foundation provides a solid base of understanding from which so much that plagues advances in workplace D&I can be seen and then challenged - allowing us to dismantle the walls that divide us or construct a bridge over them. Learning Outcomes Learn a piece of U.S. history central to a human division that is a barrier to D&I in the workplace Understand both conceptually and with concrete historical evidence that race is a social construct Draw links between the legal-historical foundation and practices within the work Presenters: Dr. Jacqueline Battalora, Ph.D., J.D
