Workshop 1

Career transformation Workshop : Snakes & Ladders (workshop by SAP)

It is not always the fastest or the brilliant who is most successful in career, but it’s the one who makes the right choices, adapts and leverages the best out of an existing situation without losing sight of the ultimate goal. This workshop involves understanding the career enablers and derailers while playing the game of “Snakes and Ladders” because career exemplifies the long winding journey of success and pitfalls in the truest sense of the word.

Workshop 2

Designing for Inclusion

How to move from compliance to culture and make inclusion a part of the culture of your organization. Culture does not have to be explained or mandated, it is automatically picked up by new people and is evident in every day behaviour of the employees. Inclusion is best exemplified by the leadership team. In this workshop, Ameen Haque, Founder, Storywallahs, will take participants through a reflective and experiential journey that lead them not just with thoughts but also action plans on inclusion.

Workshop 3

LGBT+ Inclusion and Equality at Workplace- Goldman Sachs

Organizations across the world who want to be inclusive often find themselves wondering how to go about it and it is especially stark with inclusion of LGBT+ people where law and society are often at odds with the ethical principles of Inclusion. This is even more so in country like ours where there is a fair degree of confusion in terms of where the law stands, and yet there is a clear and visible commitment from many leaders for greater inclusion of minority communities. LGBT+ employees, whether out or closeted hope for a workplace that is free from discrimination and harassment so that they could be their most productive selves without having to worry about being judged for who they are. This deep dive will take every participant/organization through a detailed flow on LGBT Primer, on Meeting the People, becoming an Ally, on best practices and charting out solutions and plans and of course an experiential learning module.

Workshop 4

Brand You- By GE
