SGO Power Hour Workshop: Running an effective and inclusive meeting

Location: 
Impact Hub Boston

Boston, MA
Organization: 
She Geeks Out

This workshop is useful for anyone who runs meetings, but is unsure they're getting the best out of their entire staff. We'll cover the importance of understanding unconscious bias and how that shows up in meetings, different ways people communicate, and how to most effectively acknowledge and include everyone-- including those team members who may not be present in the room. You'll walk away knowing:

  • What an unconscious bias is and how it relates to running an inclusive meeting
  • How people communicate differently in different situations
  • Concrete tips for managing more effective and inclusive meetings

Please note that this topic is one portion of our longer workshopsthat cover many aspects to creating an inclusive culture.

Who should attend?
People managers, human resources, directors - All genders are welcome!
