Webinar Series: Leading in a New Reality

December 9, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Careers & Recruiting with a Post-2020 Perspective

Presented by LEAD San Diego in partnership with JONES and ABC 10News

With a global pandemic and calls for social justice and equity, 2020 was a year full of change. We all were required to think quickly and adapt. It forced us to think long and hard about our values and what we can – and are called to – do, as organizations and individuals. What has the impact been on our careers and long-term plans? How have organizations changed how and who they hire? Are new skill sets in demand? Is there a more thoughtful approach to diversity and inclusion? And what about our young people – are they rethinking their plans, and what they imagine for their lives and careers?

Our featured speakers this week include executive coach Azadeh Davari,  executive recruiter Trevor Blair, and Reality Changers CEO Tamara Craver. The conversation will be moderated by LEAD Vice President Elizabeth Fitzsimons.
