    ATD | Healthy Workplace Environments
    Why are the Jellyfish Taking Over?
    In nature, when the balance of an ecosystem is disrupted, some species begin to take over to the detriment of others. This happens in business too. When collaboration and connectivity are replaced with dysfunction and disengagement, people can become jellyfish, floating along, unable or unwilling to change course. Why Are the Jellyfish Taking Over? builds on the idea of the workplace as an ecosystem that requires balance and constant change as keys to success. The parallels between natural ecosystems and work environments create an engaging, thought-provoking way for your leaders to learn about employee engagement, change management and organization design.

    Time: 8-10 a.m. 
    Location: KU Edwards Campus

    Total Rewards KC | Financial Wellness & Leaves
    Financial wellness is more than a buzzword. How people feel about their finances can have a ripple effect on every part of their lives—whether that’s their ability to prepare for a financial emergency, to save for the future, or to be truly present at work. Yet organizations have only recently started prioritizing these issues in the workplace. As the topics of financial wellness and leaves continue to gain traction, you may be wondering what your company can do to support your employees and how these offerings are giving organizations an edge in recruiting, retaining and engaging talent.

    Join UBS and the Bukaty Companies for a speaking engagement where you can learn more about financial wellness, leaves and how forward-thinking companies are improving their bottom line by offering this benefit to their workers.

    KC Chamber | 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Summit
    Project Equality believes in equality and justice in the workplace. We unite the corporate, nonprofit, education and religious communities into a force for equality, justice and fairness in the workplace. Through facilitated discussions, community leaders identify and establish best practices that enhance workplace fairness. We work collaboratively to spotlight the best resources in our region that empower fairness in the workplace.

    The workplace should be a place employees can thrive and grow. Discrimination is still common in the workplace. It takes many forms. Disparate treatment due to race, sexual harassment towards employees, reprisals because of sexual orientation, terminations due to age, ability/disability, age or religious bias. Project Equality works to raise the awareness of all forms of discrimination.
