ENCORE: Can I Tell You A Secret?

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm

Lessons from the most trusted stranger in America.

What’s it all about? In 2005, Frank Warren invited strangers in Washington, D.C. to mail a postcard to his home address with a secret they wanted to share anonymously. Each week, Frank would select a few secrets and post them to a blog – What started as a small, personal interest project, inspired by his background in crisis counseling, soon turned into a global movement – culminating in millions of collected secrets, six New York Times Bestselling Books, and over $1M in donations to suicide prevention advocacy organizations. Over the years, Frank has also traveled the world to share the lessons learned from his work. By covering topics such as anxiety, stigma, imposter syndrome, substance abuse, social isolation, self-harm, LGBTQ issues, and diversity, he has helped to curate powerful networks and communities within countless organizations.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Consider HR’s role as the “secret keeper” of an organization and the critical part we play to inspire confidence and reliability within the workplace community.
  • Recognize the inherent value in creating a culture that allows for diverse talent to participate authentically. Look inward at what barriers may prevent your workforce from presenting their full cultural add to your team.
  • Take away actionable tools for your workplace in order to build a culture of mental wellness, empathy, and inclusivity.
