  Inclusive Intelligence: Thinking Smarter in Today’s World
Dr. Arin Reeves, Nextions LLC

As our world deals with the changes that COVID-19 has necessitated (in addition to all current events), legal workplaces generally, and law firms in particular, are reimagining what it means to interact, connect, and collaborate as lawyers. We are not only changing how we work, but we are also reimagining how key values like inclusion are expressed. We know that our differences can be a source of conflict or strength, understanding and negotiating our implicit cognitive biases can be an individual competitive advantage, and we now know that it's more important than ever that we understand how to seek out and integrate different perspectives into how we think, connect, and work. This interactive virtual presentation will cover many of the specific implicit biases that affect the ways in which we learn, work, and lead, and how we can achieve our highest potential, especially in the context of how work and workplaces are changing.
 2:30 p.m.- 2:40 p.m.
 2:40 p.m.- 3:40 p.m.
  Understanding and Navigating the Intergenerational Workplace
Dr. Mark Taylor

Today’s workplace can be an exciting, though not always harmonious, mixture of four generational cohorts; Traditionals, Boomers, Xers and our youngest workers from Generation NeXt. Issues in intergenerational communication and understanding impact every part of our professional lives, from leading and following to client relations to training delivery. Understanding typical generational values, traits, preferences, and styles can improve our personal effectiveness across our goals and functions. It can help in effective management; worker and workplace effectiveness; employee harmony, satisfaction, and retention; and client relations. Generational understanding can help in our communication with clients and can impact the way we litigate cases. This program will offer a broad overview of the generational issues and dynamics in the workplace with specific, immediately applicable suggestions for being effective in all of our professional pursuits.
 3:40 p.m.- 3:45 p.m.
 3:45 p.m.- 4:45 p.m.
  Talking Mental Health at Work
Dan Berstein, MH Mediate

A fifth of us have mental health problems each year, affecting a third of all two-party conflicts. Are you comfortable talking about these issues when they come up in your legal work? Learn empowering ways to respond when someone discloses a mental health need, when you suspect a challenging behavior is related to a mental health situation, and when you would like to promote mental health resources. Examples include situations with clients and employees. Discover how to address these issues professionally and how to prevent inadvertent discrimination.
