Affinity Workgroups: From Purpose to Creation to Success
​​During this session, we will provide you with the tools and top resources to build a strong program for developing and implementing Employee Resoure Groups (ERG) and/or Affinity Groups (AG). ERG/AG's can be a very effective and impactful resource within your organization if done correctly. These employee run groups can bring together team members who share a common interest or a goal and/or are acting together for a specific purpose. It allows those who feel underserved or are in a marginalized group to feel empowered and valued, while, increasing morale and productivity within the organization.  Presenter: Lori Simon, Sparrow Health System.

Creating a Winning Culture: How Your Culture Defines Your Organization
​​In our final session, we will discuss what it means to have a winning-culture.  We will look at this through the lens of Cultural Intelligence (CQ), which is the knowledge and understanding of unique behaviors, languages and etiquette of other cultures.  During our discussion we will focus on the four (4) key areas of CQ which are: 1. CQ Drive (Willingness to work with people of different cultures), 2. CQ Knowledge (Understanding of culture), 3. CQ Strategy (Ability to adapt to cultural differences), and 4. CQ Action (Application of multicultural knowledge).   During the second part of our discussion, we will discuss the importance of cultural communication and how this can help create a strong winning team. Key Takeaways/Impacts include: Gaining a better understanding of the value that everyone brings to the workplace and discovering the ‘win-win’ in celebrating our differences.  Presenter: Fathy Shetiah, 2b Inclusive.
