As the first African American to successfully scale Mt. Everest, Sophia Danenberg's story is one of extraordinary discipline and determination.

Session 3: Growing EHS Professionals Into Leaders

Harbour B

The "EHS ceiling," or the difficulties associated with navigating up to leadership positions within the EHS&S function, is a very real challenge for EHS&S professionals who are looking to advance. With an immense pool of talent poised and ready to take on greater roles and responsibility, how can EHS&S leaders identify those future leaders and support them as they attain the hard and soft skills needed to become EHS&S leaders? Once they have reached that goal, how do you retain them? Senior and emerging leaders will come together to discuss how they made the jump into leadership, provide a look at EHS employee development programs, and offer insights from emerging leaders about what motivates them to stay with an employer and push towards higher positions within the EHS&S function.

Session 8: How to Create and Embrace a Diverse and Inclusive Workforce

Harbour B

Diversity and inclusion are topics at the forefront of most corporate agendas today because it is the right thing to do, and it has also been proven to be a driver for growth and economic prosperity. Diversity and inclusion initiatives need to have corporate support to be successful, but many may be struggling with how to provide this support. This session will help EHS&S leaders understand the concept of unacknowledged privilege and the role that privilege can play in breaking down cultural barriers, promoting inclusive behavior, and changing corporate cultures. It will also examine the different tactics and messages management teams are using to attract, develop and retain a diverse workforce.

Session 13: Increasing Your Leadership Effectiveness Through Stronger Executive Presence

This session will demonstrate how leaders can leverage their own strengths and what behaviors can grow their executive presence.

Keynote: Championing Sustainability Into Organizations at Every Stage

Metro East

Together, business and sustainability have the power to drive and inspire business purpose and meaningful sustainability impacts. Targets and improvements on energy, waste and water are common; while these are necessary fundamentals, will they solve our global climate crisis? The time has come to see sustainability as the catalyst for business growth, resiliency and leadership, instead of a "nice-to-have." This lens will inspire and benefit profitable growth, attract and retain the best employees, and ensure license to operate across markets and industries.

 

This session highlights different companies' quests toward deeper purpose and sustainability integration — internally and externally — by exploring hurdles overcome, actions taken, and movement from values to impact. Attendees will come away with insights about incremental and transformational opportunities to leverage their efforts as EHS&S professionals in shifting their own organization's sustainability paradigm.

Keynote: Global Citizenship — Change Your Mind, Change Your World

Metro East

National Geographic Explorer Chris Bashinelli, using real-life visual examples from the slums of Haiti to the fields of Uganda to the Mongolian Steppe, will illustrate how the key to productivity, meaning and connection lies in transforming not our external conditions, but our internal ones.

 

Hear Chris explain how Global Citizenship, using our everyday work and lives as a vehicle to grow inwardly, helps us become the best version of ourselves. When we embody the qualities of a Global Citizen — presence, empathy and inspiration — then we can truly inspire those around us.

 

With the mindset of the Global Citizen, every challenge in our work and lives — from a disagreement with a coworker to the loss of someone we love — becomes fuel for us to grow inwardly and reach our potential. It begins with realizing we already have everything we need to be happy right now. You'll leave this session with a better understanding of the Global Citizen concept and how it can help you.
