Young Leader Meeting
How Political Polarization Impacts the Workplace
About This Meeting
Exclusively for DEC Young Leader Members
We live in a world where diverse and sometimes extreme opinions thrive and have found their way into office conversations. At the same time, businesses and leaders are now in a position as the “trusted source” for unbiased information. Yet, being out front on social and public issues is not something most of us learned in school.
Sandy Baruah will share his thoughts on how young professionals can navigate sensitive topics while building strong work relationships.
After the fireside chat, we will break out into small groups to answer the question “Why are we so polarized?” and “Am I part of the problem?”, and then conclude with a group discussion.
