IDEA Brown Bag: Inclusive Virtual Teams – April 15, 2020

Fostering and sustaining an inclusive team culture is an important underpinning of Berkeley Lab’s IDEA strategy. Virtual teams (or teams with remote employees) are no exception. Whether you are part of a fully distributed workforce like Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), or you have a remote co-worker living in another state: we must make every effort to ensure that each individual is able to fully contribute and serve as a valued team member.

As of April 2020, Berkeley Lab is currently sheltering in place due to COVID-19. Many of our colleagues are working from home, and experiencing a new remote work environment and culture. While the disruption to our work life has been challenging, this situation has also enabled us to think differently and innovate. For example, how can we run effective and inclusive virtual meetings? How can we continue to operate and conduct business with IDEA principles in mind, if the team is working from home?

Staff and supervisors are both welcome to attend.
