Workshop 2

How to Talk about Workplace Equity with All Stakeholders
Christine Hendrickson and Katie Bardaro, Syndio

This session is for leaders facing the pressures of increased transparency around workplace equity, for companies that are already (or soon will be) required by law to post salary ranges or report on pay data, for companies fielding intensifying questions from employees about pay, and for forward-thinking leaders who see the opportunity to harness transparency for a competitive edge, but need the right tools to proceed. Join us for strategic advice, real-word examples, and a glimpse into what’s coming and help you make sense of your options so you can take control of your story, build trust, and seize that first-mover advantage in the form of higher retention and employee devotion.
