It's On Us:
How Leader Intervention Drives Inclusion
and Prevents Inequity and Hostility

presented by Jesse Bridges & Elizabeth Owens Bille


In response to recent events, many companies have made strong public statements condemning inequality and violence in their communities. Companies are also committing to significant action and sustainable changes internally to promote equity, foster allyship and belonging, and prevent both subtle and egregious acts of harassment and discrimination. To achieve these goals, HR and other organizational leaders - in this moment and moving forward - must be active participants and role models to prevent harm, create meaningful change, and promote inclusive workplaces.

In this session, we will explore how company leaders can recognize the many subtle warning signs of harmful behavior at work, develop the skills to de-escalate and address those situations in the moment, model allyship, and influence equitable, inclusive practices. We will discuss how leaders can overcome personal barriers and biases that may inhibit them from speaking up when they see pending harm. We will also explore the role that mental well-being plays in preventing acts of hostility at work and what leaders can do to facilitate healthy, non-toxic environments.
