Burnout can impact your ability to be a rested leader. This dynamic workshop provides space to refresh your view of rest and re-energize yourself to participate in your respite actively. Show up as the leader you want to be, personally and professionally.

Speaker: Jennifer Forman

You’ll learn about rapidly evolving global ESG frameworks and regulations, right-sizing your sustainability report, and rethinking how we communicate about environmental and social programs. Expect to discuss emerging global regulation, policy advocacy, customer vs. employee perspectives, and supporting top-line revenue.
