Welcome to the sixty-first issue of CEE News!
I’ve dedicated much of this space in past issues of CEE News to sharing about our annual Re:Imagine Leadership Summit. I’ve talked about how we’re preparing for the Summit, what some of the topics are, who is speaking, and what we hope you’ll take away. This year’s Summit is just three weeks away. We won’t be holding it in the conference space as originally planned, because of…you know.
Of course, we’re disappointed that we’ll lose the kinetic energy that happens when we gather in the same physical space. But shifting from in-person to an online format has enabled us to expand beyond the physical limits of a conference room. It’s enabled us to add pre- and post-Summit events, and build a choose-your-own-adventure style program unlike anything we’ve ever done before.
We’ve built new relationships with executives and thought leaders in the Diversity & Inclusion space. This year’s Summit will kick off on the afternoon of September 23rd with a keynote and panel discussion dedicated to The Bottom Line On Bias in the Workplace. The conversations we’ve had to prepare for that event has led to brainstorming sessions about hosting quarterly panel discussions that include C-Suite executives to learn where D&I efforts are having the greatest impact. So, watch this space.
For the September 24th Summit main event, we’re preparing TED-style talks, breakouts, Tracks, and keynotes all designed to help you lead in an era of Ch-ch-change. The feature keynote will be given by Dr. Tony Baron, our Co-Founder and Scholar-in-Residence, on The 7 Key Practices of Transformative Leadership. With a double doctorate in theology and psychology, Dr. Baron draws on his vast experience to connect an inspirational message with actionable tools to help you put what you’ve learned into practice.
In fact, following the September 24th Summit, we’re launching 7 weekly one-hour group sessions online led by Dr. Baron that you can participate in using an accompanying journal to work on developing each of the seven practices.
Whether you’re an emerging leader or a seasoned executive, we invite you to join us starting September 23rd to invest in your growth and development. The content is custom built to give you the inspiration, tools, community, and strength you need to regroup, reflect, and reconnect with what matters most.
