Heart to Heart: Language of Leadership – HR Perspective

November 19 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am


The language of leadership is changing. Join GW4W for a LIVE discussion on Facebook with Global HR leaders that will examine some of the outdated business languages that needs to be changed, the cost of not addressing how leaders are communicating with team members at all levels, and an understanding of how to more effectively address language that is getting in the way of meaningful inclusion through different cultural lenses. The discussion will be led by Karyn Detje, GW4W member, founder of HR consultancy FABRIC, and former Chief Human Resources Officer for Quokka Sports, Publicis Groupe Media, and Tory Burch.
