Creating a Supportive and Productive Workplace in the Face of Trauma
1.0 elimination of bias credit applied for
All employees face personal situations from time to time that can impact their productivity and efficiency at work. In 2020, it is not surprising to have employees around us who have experienced trauma. Whether dealing with racism, losing a loved one to an illness, navigating grave financial uncertainty, or handling an extreme amount of responsibilities, employees are being stretched in unprecedented directions. Creating a supportive workplace culture can be the difference between an employee thriving and continuing to contribute versus an employee struggling and being challenged in an environment of shame and misunderstanding. This session will explore what we can be doing to create a workplace culture that gives all our employees the best chance for success despite navigating difficult personal situations.

Using the Power of Communication to Lead through Crisis

Compliance leaders often manage high-risk, emotionally charged situations for their organizations. This has been especially true in 2020 as businesses navigate the impacts of a global pandemic, economic crisis and social justice issues. How an organization responds in a crisis will have a long-lasting impact on its reputation and ability to earn trust. In this session, we’ll focus on using strategic communication to move businesses forward with clarity during a crisis. We’ll talk through best practices and share tools to help compliance leaders successfully manage through high-stakes situations.

Elimination of Bias: Interrupting Stigma While Surviving and Thriving in Challenging Times
1.0 elimination of bias credit applied for
In the best of times, the legal profession is at risk for high levels of stress and mental health challenges. During challenging times, our professional and personal lives may seem out of control and this can affect our work and relationships. This program will identify normal feelings, reactions, and behaviors, and recognize when they are cause for concern. It will examine the role of stigma and bias in preventing us from asking for and accessing help for mental health issues. The program will also identify tools to cope and to thrive while developing and enhancing skills to identify and address individual needs.
– Joan Bibelhausen; Executive Director, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers
– Bob Schuneman; Outreach Coordinator, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers
