Registration & Breakfast

7:45 AM – 8:30 AM

Pre-Conf – Bias – computing and human

We’re all biased. It’s just what it is. And we’re creating biased AIs. IS there a way to create, without bias? Is there a way to build the new economy, without bias?

8:30 AM – 9:05 AM

Thriving in Disruption

Discussion with industry leaders that have transitioned from “traditional” style organizations and moved towards more flexible and adaptable organizations, and how they were able to transform disruptions into opportunities. Lessons from startups about how to thrive in constant flux, how to adapt to new parameters, how to be flexible and enjoy the journey.
MODERATOR: MONICA ANTOHI – The Business Magazine for Women

9:10 AM – 9:55 AM

Innovation: Industrial Sized

Is there such thing as innovation? Or is that a by-product of the freedom to create, and make mistakes, and try, and try again? Can we do innovation within rigid, traditional style organizations?
SPEAKER: BRETT TRUSKO – International Association of Innovation Professionals

10:00 AM – 10:45 AM

Tools for the New Economy

The new economy is global, it’s mobile-enabled, it’s going towards automation, AI, self-driving, no-driving. What do organizations and leaders need to have in hand now, to prepare for those kinds of changes?
SPEAKERS: SHANTERA CHATMAN – The Chatman Women’s Foundation, ARIANA SMETANA – Art-Via

12 Trillion Reasons

There are 12 Trillion reasons why you should make sure you’re front and center at this session. There are 12 Trillion USD to be had for the companies that embrace equality.

MODERATOR: MONICA ANTOHI – The Business Magazine for Women

11:50 AM – 12:30 AM

Equal Rights for Men

Men have lost a lot of their rights with the introduction of the 9-5 workday. Is this affecting corporate performance for men and women? Can we find a way to give men back the freedom to work how they want to work, and the freedom to have a life outside of the office? What will happen if we remove the boxes we’ve been assigned to by the larger society, can we remove the societal pressures on the men? We’re looking at equality for men. We’re exploring the freedom that comes with that, for everyone.
MODERATOR: MONICA ANTOHI – The Business Magazine for Women

12:30 PM – 1:15 PM

1:15 PM – 2:00 PM

Leadership 2.0

What is leadership? What does being a leader mean in today’s day and age? Has that changed? What are the attributes of a leader in 2020?
SPEAKERS: JAMES BROWN – EncourageX, DIANNE ELDRIDGE – Emmerson Automation Solutions, MICHELE PILIBOSIAN – Entrust Energy
MODERATOR: MONICA ANTOHI – The Business Magazine for Women

2:05 PM – 2:50 PM

Culture and Mission Alignment

“That Grass Sure Looks Greener……#WorkShouldntSuck #MakeYourMark”
Leading change in an organization without purpose and radically inconsistent culture

2:55 PM – 3:40 PM

Collaboration 5.0

Collaboration is acknowledged as one of the most critical organizational skills for the coming decade, but it has been much misunderstood. Collaboration is an activity, but it is also a central operating system. By formally addressing it as we do other key systems, organizations have reached amazing levels of alignment, efficiency and clarity. A data-driven, objective collaboration system also succeeds in neutralizing much of the negative impact of bias and promotes a more equitable workplace.

2:55 PM – 3:40 PM

Conscious Inclusion

What does that mean? Have you thought about how a blind person interacts with your app? Or how they’re reading the latest news on your organization? No? Have you thought about how a highly qualified purple heart veteran that’s dealing with an anxiety disorder from his deployment can come in and do a job interview, panel-style, in full bright lights, with his back at the door? No?
SPEAKERS: SARA SPEER SELBER -The Project Management Team, CRISTEN PEAT – Bridging Apps

3:55 PM – 4:20 PM
tea break

4:45 PM – 5:30 PM

The Future of Work, Workforce & Workday Re-Design

Automation, AI, an aging workforce, pipeline and re-education of the workforce, a distributed workforce, the gig economy. These are disruptors that organizational leaders have to take into account as they manage their talent pool, the new workday, the restructuring of the new workforce, as retiring baby boomers leave a massive 40% hole in the workforce, and the new generation keeps getting pushed into entrepreneurship.
SPEAKERS: AUDREY SCOTT – teenager, actress, KATIE HOUSE – Women in Energy Network, DEBORAH GRABEIN – Hunton Andrews Kurth, MOHAMED BIALY – ThoughtSpace
MODERATOR: MONICA ANTOHI – The Business Magazine for Women

5:15 PM – 6:00 PM

Diversity + Equality = Innovation

In a city as culturally diverse as Houston is, diversity should be the organizational norm. It is not. And it is a somewhat dreaded word because it implies a reduction in opportunity for some. That is not the case. Bring in talent (read culturally, diverse and equal), and with it ideas that your organization could never have thought up before. This leads to innovation. With innovation come new income streams and prosperity. This will add 12 Trillion USD to the GPD. Does your organization know how to tap into all of that talent?

6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
