“Unprecedented Leadership During Unprecedented Times” – this is the main theme of the Association Leadership Forum, created by ASAE, which embraces diversity, engagement and governance.
It will take place at PlanetIMEX on Thursday 15 October. The programme has been developed to provide high level insights into the strategies association executives can employ to navigate a business environment that continues to change and challenge.
How to steer colleagues and clients through the digital working environment, whether it’s remote working or virtual meetings, is tackled in some of the expert-led sessions. Jeffrey Shields, President & CEO of the National Business Officers Association discusses Governance in a Virtual Environment, and Richard Yep, Chief Executive Officer of the American Counseling Association, shares advice on Leading a Remote Workforce.
The business case for diversity in the workplace is now overwhelming with many recognising the power of inclusivity to foster innovation, creativity and empathy. Vicki Deal-Williams, Chief Staff Officer for Multicultural Affairs at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, explores this in Ensuring Organizational Alignment, Diversity & Inclusion. A panel discussion on Leading with Strength and Humility is set to be a wide ranging dialogue on the transformative power of leadership to change and contribute to a more open, diverse and inclusive society.
The bespoke programme also spotlights the need for the latest legal guidance with Jeffrey S. Tenenbaum, Managing Partner at Tenenbaum Law Group, detailing legal considerations in Ask the Association Attorney.
