Speaking Sessions

Charla Huber will be speaking at Make It Safe 2020 at the following times.

How can we lead workplaces and teams that are inclusive and respectful? In manufacturing and food processing, we see tremendous ethnic diversity, a mix of younger and older workers, temporary or migrant workers, and often differences in language, race, and sexual orientation.

In the pandemic, we have seen new prejudices cause friction in many plants. In this session, we consider the role of organization values in building and supporting an inclusive workplace. ​Discover and discuss new strategies in defining values that support inclusivity, and integrating them into your management approach and decision-making.
