VIRTUAL EVENT SERIES

“Guide your team through change.”

From disgraced Hollywood moguls to underhanded politicians, the past 2 years have been awash with workplace scandal. While many organizations have updated their policies, training and investigation methods, we’re still figuring out how to approach #MeToo in the workplace. Join Thoughtexchange’s CPO Dessalen Wood to talk about the massive impact of #MeToo and how to guide your team through change.

In this virtual event we will:

  • Look at research on the post #MeToo workplace
  • Discuss changes to the investigation process
  • Examine how companies are tackling a “macho” mentality
  • Share how we’re integrating #MeToo into training programs

Laura Milne

Account Executive

Laura’s passion for stewarding collaboration stems from a decade of work experience in partnership development, stakeholder engagement, and research facilitation. Having held professional roles spanning the higher education, governmental, and non-profit sectors, she was drawn to Thoughtexchange because of a genuine enthusiasm for tools and processes that support inclusive and effective decision making. In her current role, she works with higher education leaders to help them map their strategic use of Thoughtexchange to support their unique institutional goals.

While she has called the beautiful west coast home for most of her life, Laura feels lucky to have had the opportunity to live, work, and study in places such as China, India, and Europe. She is an avid (some might say obsessive) runner and would truly rather be outside at any given moment. Laura holds a Masters degree in Communication & Culture and is also a certified yoga teacher.
