The next big challenge is coming—are leaders at your organization prepared to meet it?

Now is the time for human resources and talent management professionals to empower their leaders to gain the skills and competencies they need to not only meet the next challenge head on but drive success at the highest levels.

The New, Purposeful Leader combines effectiveness, a keen sense of purpose and an unwavering commitment to inclusion to unlock the best possible business outcomes. Today’s leader must be prepared to both lead the business and inspire their teams and people to ascend to new heights. And, organizations that develop Purposeful and Inclusive Leaders are gaining the edge in a highly competitive market.

In this previously recorded roundtable discussion, we will be joined by human resources leaders who are equipping their organizations with unique and strategic approaches to leadership development and readiness and embracing this new future of leadership.

Join Jim Link, Chief Human Resources Officer, SHRM; Natalie Hyatt, Senior Director of Learning & Development, Travel + Leisure; Calvin Crosslin, Chief Diversity Officer, Lenovo; President, Lenovo Foundation; VP, Lenovo Human Resources; Godfrey Bethea, Jr., Vice President of Equity, People and Culture, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank; Cindy Cake, EVP, Chief Human Resources Officer, Ephrata National Bank; and Bill Vallari, Learning & Development Manager, Fujifilm Holdings America Corporation.

The people who identify and live their purpose and are more inclusive are the most impactful leaders in the workplace.
