Presenter: Anne Loehr

The U.S. has always been known as a melting pot; diversity is its strong suit. However, when it comes to the workforce and corporate America, diversity has been lacking. No longer. Minorities are becoming the majority and that means the majority of consumers, clients, employees, and leaders in the workforce. The good news is, diversity is great for business. Let’s take a look at how organizations can best prepare for the diverse workforce of tomorrow.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the benefits of diversity and inclusion
  • Learn how bias impacts you and those around you
  • Identify bias busting tips to use on a daily basis

After graduating from Cornell University, Anne Loehr managed and owned international, eco-friendly hotels and safari companies for over 13 years. Frustrated that she couldn't find top-quality team development programs for her 500 employees, Anne honed these skills herself by creating her own dynamic leadership and management development programs.

Since selling her hospitality businesses and becoming a certified executive coach, facilitator and EVP at the Center for Human Capital Innovation (CHCI), she has been working with diverse organizations such as Facebook, AstraZeneca, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, American Red Cross, Booz Allen Hamilton, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, the White House Fellows Program, Merrill Lynch, Instagram and P&G to consistently help organizational teams improve their communications and deepen their working relationships. The impact? Creative collaboration, improved employee retention and increased sales.

Named the "Generational Guru" by The Washington Post, Anne’s age and gender diversity work has been featured in Newsweek International, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Huffington Post, National Geographic Traveler, Washingtonian and CNN Money. Anne speaks regularly at national conferences and on the radio.  She writes for Fast Company; she also guest lectures at Cornell University and is a faculty member of the American Management Association, teaching leadership courses around the country.

Anne Loehr Anne was an Entrepreneur in Residence at Cornell and co-founded Safaris for the Soul, international leadership retreats that help senior managers find their organizational values and purpose. Her first book, A Manager’s Guide to Coaching: Simple and Effective Ways to Get the Best Out of Your Employees  was published by the American Management Association. Her 2nd book, Managing the Unmanageable: How to Motivate Even the Most Unruly Employee, was published by Career Press.
