Join us for a conversation with Stephen Bárczay Sloan, Author and Lead Researcher at the Humane Leadership Institute.
Creating an inclusive culture gets a lot easier when we start with ourselves. Stephen approaches leadership through a lens of including all of our humanity as we strive for improved performance every day. His perspective is informed by years of executive, technical, and creative team leadership across a number of industries.
Stephen will be joining us to talk about simple experiments we can do in the privacy of our own self-leadership lab that will help us develop a compassionate approach to including what's true about both our humanity and our desire to be as effective as possible. We hope you join the conversation!
Jina is a consultant and speaker on diversity, inclusion, culture, and belonging. She creates training programs and workshops to help clients move forward in their D&I journey. She is a storyteller and speaks candidly about her experiences, hard lessons, and ‘aha’ moments that helped her understand the importance of individuality, the value of curiosity, and the courage it takes to “just” be yourself. Often described as “approachable” and “relatable” by her clients, she works with purpose and the intention of being engaging, practical, and immediately applicable to real-world situations. Jina draws from her unique background and mix of work experiences to offer examples and share insights designed to benefit everyone across the workplace ecosystem – executives, management, employees, and customers.
Previously, she was Principal Consultant at EtiennePartners (EP), a boutique consulting firm that offered a unique strategy development, workshops & coaching to leaders, executives and entrepreneurs. Co-founded with her husband, EP was a full-time partnership in both work and life. Although in different professions, their work often intersected around the importance of self-awareness in leadership and navigating conflict within teams. Combining their experiences, backgrounds, and work led to the development of their unique approach to D&I, which she continues to use in her practice today.
