1:30PM- 3:00PM Educational Session(s): Please select one of the sessions below when registering for the afternoon program: 


Educational Session 1:  

Title: Addressing Unconscious Bias: Are You More Biased Than You Think?

Speaker: Claudia Schabel, President of Schabel Solutions

Organizations have worked for years to help their employees understand the value of a diverse workforce. One of the primary obstacles we face in leveraging workplace diversity is our own unconscious bias. Research suggests that we instinctively place people into categories based on their appearance, educational level, social status, job title, and so on. Right or wrong, this helps us order our world and saves us time and effort as we process information about people.  However, these stereotypes—or unconscious biases—lead us to make assumptions about others. These unconscious biases can affect who is hired, promoted, and developed in the workplace, which can ultimately derail your organization’s culture and diversity efforts.


About the Speaker: Claudia Schabel, President of Schabel Solutions, combines over a decade of experience as a Diversity and Inclusion practitioner and strategist with Fortune 500 companies, and her multicultural background to offer coaching and consulting services in the areas of equity, cultural competency, diversity and inclusion to businesses, educational and not-for-profit organizations.


Educational Session 2:  

Title: Ways/Trends in Meeting Engagement

Speaker: Marcy Cooley, Strategist in Solution Development Services, ITA Group

Marcy will be sharing event trends and ideas and providing insight as to what’s hot for events that we can translate or we can scale for an association audience.


About the Speaker: Marcy Cooley is an accomplished marketing professional with 20+ years marketing experience. She's an organized, detail-oriented team leader with strong interpersonal skills and a can-do attitude. Marcy has a proven success in developing and nurturing relationships, as well as working with clients and internal team members to exceed expectations, on-time and on budget in a deadline-driven environment.
