    In these unprecedented times of high turnover and employee burnout, it is crucial for managers to retain, engage and motivate current staff. One proven strategy for managers is to clearly communicate the organization’s big picture and how employees fit into it — people simply want to know how and why their work makes a difference. Employees who clearly understand how they contribute to the big picture are more likely to: • Become more invested in their jobs and make a difference • Bring innovative ideas to the table • Work collaboratively with a team and improve job performance • Trust decisions made by management and serve as an advocate for the organization In this program, we will review examples of how this strategy creates a more committed and innovative workforce. Participants will also learn ways to implement this strategy using employee check-ins, team discussions and performance management conversations.

    In this webinar, we will explore the challenges, opportunities and case studies of Web3 applications in the legal sector and how it impacts Smart Contracts and the ecosystem. Blockchain is the foundation for the second era of the internet ― where anything of value, including money, our identities, cultural assets like music and art and even a vote can become a digital asset, managed, transacted, moved and stored securely peer to peer. Web2 refers to the version of the internet most of us know today ― an internet dominated by companies that provide services in exchange for your personal data. Web3 refers to decentralized apps that run on the blockchain. These are apps that allow anyone to participate without monetizing their personal data. Web3 will fundamentally impact all ecosystems, but how, exactly, is yet to be discovered.

    Join this interactive session for guidance on how leaders can enhance the sense of belonging in a firm by creating an open and welcoming environment in which employees can be their authentic selves. You’ll explore the economic and racial injustice crises from a diversity, equity and inclusion lens since the onset of COVID-19. You’ll consider implicit bias and how the sooner we’re able to recognize our biases and become more self-aware, the better we’ll be as leaders. You’ll also learn about imposter syndrome and how to recognize and address employees who feel as though they do not belong.

    Objectives: 

    • Develop equity, inclusion and diversity programming for employees.
    • Create awareness of implicit bias and learn how to form healthy working relationships with employees who may not be similar to you.
    • Identify solutions for increasing employee engagement by creating a space of inclusiveness.
    • Appraise how to be a true ally to employees in underrepresented communities in the workplace.
