This event is open to all Berkeley Lab Employees. Berkeley Lab is a Stanford VMware Women’s Leadership Corporate Program member.

Professor and Stanford VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab director Shelley Correll will kick off the session by examining research that shows that, under the right conditions, diverse teams outperform homogenous teams. Yet, diversity is not enough. To realize the value of diversity, teams must also be inclusive, ensuring that all members are able to share their unique ideas and have their contributions heard and valued. Correll will share “team dynamics killers” that limit the power of teams to leverage all of their talent and will discuss evidence-based strategies for getting beyond these barriers and creating truly inclusive and successful teams.

Then, Lab Senior Research Scholar JoAnne Wehner will moderate a panel of industry leaders including: Anna Edwin, Senior Director, Global Head of Talent Development at TPG; Rhona O’Leary, Global Head of Portfolio and Product Development Strategy at Genentech; and Vijay Pendakur, Vice President and Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer at Zynga, Inc. They will reflect on the challenges and the opportunities for building more diverse and inclusive teams and workplaces as we move into the new hybrid work environments that are emerging from the pandemic.

The webinar lasts 90 minutes.  The webinar will be recorded and posted to the members-only section of our website.
