Speaking Truth to Power
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Mary Ann and Sarah as they chat with Sarika Gundu about being able to advocate for yourself and others at work.
If you're like Sarah, the way you would pitch the importance of employee well-being to the C-Suite might go something like this, "It's the right thing to do so we're doing it."
But if you're Mary Ann, a C-suite whisperer, you'd do it something like this, "Developing a sustainable system that supports employee well-being aligns with your organization's mission by [insert enticing statement], and it's going to reduce your organization's spending by [insert eye-catching number], and here's how we'll do it together."
Does one pitch work more than the other? Probably. Could there be another way? Likely, and that's why we're going to be joined by Sarika Gundu, an expert on getting the powers-that-be to buy in.
Some questions Mary Ann and Sarah have for Sarika include:
Speaking truth to power is easier for some folks than for others. What advice do you have for those who are from marginalized groups or in the minority at work? What advice do you have for those who are inexperienced or new to a work situation?
There are times when it is better to keep our thoughts to ourselves. How do you decide when it is not safe or wise to speak up?
When it comes to getting the C-suite on board to actively support employee well-being, what should you come prepared with?
What do you do if they say “No”?
