Bringing Your Whole Self to Work
Ever found yourself settling into your work self on the way to the office? You know the one—the version of you that’s less controversial, easier for folks to handle. What would it look like to bring your whole self to work? The same you that goes to happy hour or hosts dinner parties—the real you. What if the thing that some consider your greatest workplace liability became your greatest strength?
In this session, you’ll hear stories of folks who’ve faced this challenge and taken the courageous leap of bringing their authentic selves to the workplace. Learn about the challenges they faced and immeasurable benefits of living this practice. Potential speakers likely to be on the panel: a black republican, a queer trans immigrant, and a recovered heroin addict.
- Craft powerful stories of self
- Identify strategies for making workplaces more inclusive
- Learn lessons directly from folks who have navigated this journey
