First Look at Speakers for the 9th Annual 3% Conference

 

WORK THAT WORKS FOR ALL OF US
The conference is two weeks away. Here’s what you need to know: 
  • The event is 3 days: Monday, July 27th - Wednesday, July 29th
  • On Monday, attendees gain access to the 3% Studio Sessions, 25+ on demand sessions and series by a wide range of speakers on incredibly timely topics: ready to help tackle your WFH reality, lead through uncertainty, or work toward inclusion and relevancy. And you can enjoy them at your own pace for the rest of 2020. There are several “don’t miss” live sessions/gatherings on Monday evening, too. 
  • On Tuesday and Wednesday, plan to watch and engage LIVE as we dive into the 4 Pillars of the Future of Work, featuring a mix of live keynotes, panels, and discussions running from approximately 9:30am-1:45pm PSTeach day. 
We’re so excited to announce our four pillars we’ll be diving into on Tuesday and Wednesday of the conference:

1. Agile Work Environments. 
Sponsored by Amazon 
A chorus of voices have been asking to work where, when and how they choose for years. Driven by a global Pandemic, companies have been thrust into remote work scenarios—discovering upsides of increased productivity, saved commute time, and lower office costs—while recognizing our need for togetherness as social creatures in a collision business. How will the future of work free us to balance the two? 

2. Wellness. 
Once-taboo topics like loneliness, grief and mental health are increasingly being normalized—and seen as central to employee longevity, productivity and belonging. Everyday practices to manage stress and combat burnout are finding their ways into company rituals for the betterment of all.

3. Conscious Leadership. 
Sponsored by Interpublic Group 
It doesn’t matter how high a leader's IQ is, if she's emotionally unskilled. Leaders with finely tuned EQ can truly see individual employees for who they are and what they're feeling. Being able to lead with empathy, and manage through team dynamics, racial and social injustices, and ambiguous world realities is key to 21st Century leadership.

4. Multigenerational Workforces. 
Sponsored by AARP 
Now that we're living longer than ever, five generations are working alongside one another, with 25% of the workforce soon to be over the age of 55. What does it take to embrace and optimize this abundance of perspectives? Avoiding stereotypes, using curiosity to manage through conflict, and recognizing age diversity for what it truly offers us: a business boon.
