Romar Leadership Round Table: Building Inclusive Leadership for Stronger Teams

Yellow round table and chairs on blue background

12:00pm CT (1:00pm ET and 10:00am PT)

Romar's Management and Leadership Development Round Table series returns in 2022 with an exciting and important topic. Special guest Sharon Grehan of Gilead Sciences will join David Davis in a discussion of steps leaders can take to address workplace inequity, and how development teams can support and prepare them. 

While the topic of diversity and inclusion (D&I) isn’t new, 2020 was a wake-up call for companies to reexamine their D&I initiatives. A growing number of laws and requirements are being enacted to support greater diversity in the workplace. And while companies are spending more than ever on these initiatives, they are still failing to make meaningful progress. Employees are looking to leadership to make a difference. It doesn’t matter how many policies or D&I initiatives companies have in place if leaders can’t translate equality into a set of behaviors, norms, and routines. 

Join us for a round-table discussion on barriers to achieving gender equity in the workplace and actions leaders can take to make meaningful progress. Sharon Grehan will facilitate the hour-long virtual conversation, hosted by Romar's President David Davis. Anyone with a stake in workplace equity is welcome to participate. 

Who should participate? 

Anyone who develops leaders or who has an interest in diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
