Maine HR Convention: May 10 – 12, 2022


Workshop C: Creating Space for Young Leaders

Monday, May 10th, 2021 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am

@ The Intersection of Trust and Diversity

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.Trust is now considered a critical factor of organizational success. At the same time, the transfer of workplace power and responsibility is flowing from one generation to the next while society is riveted by the challenges of our diversity (or lack thereof). Creating space for young leaders to thrive requires an HR focus on all three issues – trust, generational, and diversity. We’re bringing to the screen two individuals who have thought a great deal about this. David Pease is one of Maine’s leading advocates and coaches of young leaders and the Director of Talent, Diversity & Inclusion at Bangor Savings Bank. Katie Shorey brings a couple of unique perspectives to the table in her roles with Live + Work in Maine and as volunteer president of Startup Maine. You will also hear the stories of two aspiring leaders at BSB who are first-generation Americans – Nancy Kamaliza, who was born in Rwanda, and Diana LeBlanc, who was born in Colombia.    

What’s it all about?    

  • Discover ways to overlay the value of trust into your strategic workforce development and succession planning initiatives.  
  • Learn how to advocate for the corporate transparency and authenticity necessary for young leaders to thrive in your organization. 
  • Witness how your leadership portfolio is enhanced when you model and coach for trusting behaviors.
