Local and Regional Economic Update with Anirban Basu
COVID-19 has rocked what had appeared to be a nearly invincible economy; one associated with substantial job growth, multi-decade lows in unemployment, sturdy compensation increases, robust retail sales, low inflation, and strong financial market performance. Underneath that strong performance, however, was a set of fragilities that have been exposed by the pandemic. This webinar speaks to our current economic circumstances, how difficult things are likely to become over the foreseeable future, and the contours of the brisk recovery to come thereafter.
*This event is a collaborative session from the Business and Industry and the Personal Financial Planning Conference Committees.
Is unconscious bias hindering you, your team or your organization? Unconscious bias is bias that happens automatically. It is triggered by our brain making quick judgments and assessments of people and situations based on our background, cultural environment and personal experiences. Have you ever arrived home from work and don’t remember the drive at all? Or perhaps you moved, but drove to the old house on your way home. Once neural pathways are formed, like your daily commute, they become almost automatic. We don’t spend time thinking about each turn on the way home, our body just does it. While this can be helpful for remembering your route home, it can be detrimental in other areas of our lives. In this session we will explore these biases, how they might be hurting, us, our team and our organization and what we can do to create new neural pathways and combat unconscious bias.

What causes an otherwise intelligent person – a person who knows the difference between right and wrong – to make a choice that will negatively impact themselves and their organization? You’ll find out in this fascinating presentation on human values and ethics. With a unique perspective gained from his own past experience, Chuck sheds new light on why we do what we do and how to influence behavior.
Most ethics presentations and training programs focus on compliance and legal issues—as if ethical choices are either legal or not. The reality is, ethical choices have far more impact on a company long before the issue of “legal or illegal” comes into play. While your Ethics Code of Conduct might meet all the standards required, the missing piece for most companies is the ability to help management and employees understand the human dynamic associated with conduct management.
It’s time to take ethics training in a different direction. No longer is a four hour compliance speech going to change behavior! Chuck will pull back the curtain to reveal the truth about ethical behavior and how we shape a new direction in ethical leadership.
