Silicon ValleySpeaking Up to Make a Difference

Speaking Up to Make a Difference

Join Barbie Brewer, Chief People Officer at Marqueta Inc. as we discuss speaking up to make a difference.

As we become more global, inclusion becomes even more important. We can’t assume that we all have the same foundation in regard to diversity and inclusion. Speaking when necessary, and in a productive way, can make the difference in building a culture in which everyone feels they belong. Seeking to understand intent and helping others realize their impact can make a meaningful difference at your company and shouldn’t stop at HR.


Learning Objectives: 

– Building a desire to empower your organization to part of the solution to inclusion
– Accepting that we all make mistakes. Some of the mistakes are better coached than “judged”.
– Reminding people that Diversity drives a much greater need to focus on Inclusion and Belonging
– Inspiring everyone in the room to make a positive difference
