Join Jennifer Brown for this Metro New York O&E Event: From Covering Up our Identities to Bringing our Authentic Selves to Work
July 9 – Dr. Yvette Burton from the Deloitte Center for Inclusion joins Kenji Yoshino, author & NYU Professor of Constitutional Law, to share valuable insights from a joint research project into how the pressure to conform prevents many of us from bringing our authentic selves to work.
After these thought leaders present their personal experiences and their research findings, the audience will participate in round table discussions about how many of us cover in one or more of four areas that identify us with our group: Appearance (grooming, attire, mannerisms); Affiliation (behaviors); Advocacy (activities); and Association (individuals in our group).
Participants will also receive a copy of the research study and have an opportunity to network after the discussions. Seating will be limited. Registration is required.
Thanks to the Deloitte Center for Inclusion for helping facilitate this program, and to our generous sponsor Towers Watson.
