Sponsored by CPS Recruitment, Inc.

Register for the remaining sessions, here.

And revisit the previous sessions below:

Session 1: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Being an Ally in the Workplace

While diversity and inclusion (D&I) isn’t new, 2020 was a wake-up call for companies to reexamine their D&I initiatives. Organizations must evolve or risk a shrinking candidate pool, reduced market share and ultimately, lost profitability. Understand your role as leadership strives to make a difference. You’ll learn valuable insight from Dr. Juhanna Rogers, vice president of Racial Equity & Social Impact at CenterState CEO.

Session 2: From Boomers to Gen Z: Working with Colleagues Across Demographics

When multiple generations coexist in the workforce, effective management and communication is challenging, but imperative. You can coexist and be effective in successfully working across demographic groups–be it Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials or Gen Z–when you better understand the defining traits and work preferences of each.

Presenters: Pennie Gorney – Dermody, Burke & Brown, Director of Marketing; Erica Muscatello – Dermody, Burke & Brown, Marketing Manager; Ruthnie Angrand – City of Syracuse, Director of Communications and Marketing 

Session 3: Honing Your Networking Skills, In person and Virtually

Networking in person and virtually allows you to meet people who can help you get your next job, advance in your current role or assist in making valuable connections and other business priorities. Even for seasoned professionals, networking can be daunting. The panelists provide tips to get you started, or enhance your current skills.

Presenters: Jody Frawley, Amplified Digital Agency – Integrated Marketing Strategist; Sarah Parton, Visions Federal Credit Union, Community Builder and Heather Vashaw, Pathfinder Bank, VP Human Resources

Session 4: How to Make Tomorrow a Better Day

Have you ever wondered why some people and organizations excel even in difficult times? Faced with unprecedented challenges some people fail, others simply survive, but few grow and even prosper. What distinguishes these groups? Hear from community leaders on how they have faced challenges head on to empower others, and drive positive change.

Presenters: Onondaga County Executive J Ryan McMahon II, President & CEO of CenterState CEO Rob Simpson, and United Way of Central New York President Nancy Kern Eaton

Session 5: Navigating the Return to “Normal”

As employees return to the office while continuing to navigate pandemic-life, they face many personal and professional challenges that have changed or continue to evolve. How can we best transition back to life around the water cooler, as opposed to Zoom calls from the dining room table in your sweats and slippers?

Presenters: Monifa Wilcox, vice president of Human Resources, CenterState CEO, Louise Hand, Site Human Resources Manager at FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant
