Queen City Certified is building a community of changemakers with a common vision and goal: a diverse and thriving workforce that brings greater success to our families, employers, cities, and regions. In 2021, we will continue to elevate equity together. We are proud to announce our first in a series of “Elevating Equity” community events. Dr. Stefanie K. Johnson, WSJ best-selling author of Inclusify: The Power of Uniqueness and Belonging to Build Innovative Teams, will be leading a discussion on how to foster a culture where people feel engaged, empowered, accepted, and valued. Participants will have an opportunity to connect with and learn from one another in the small group discussions that follow.
An associate professor at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Leeds School of Business, Dr. Johnson studies and teaches at the intersection of leadership and diversity, focusing on (1) how unconscious bias affects the evaluation of leaders and (2) strategies that leaders can use to mitigate bias. She is a frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, has presented around the world (including at the White House for National Equal Pay Day in 2016), and her work has been featured in Forbes, The Economist, Newsweek, Time, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, HuffPost, Washington Post, CNN, ABC, NBC, CNBC.
