ACEC New York, in coordination with ACEC National, is working to promote more diversity and inclusion opportunities. As part of this initiative, ACEC has launched a series of webinars to discuss this important and timely topic.

Blind Spots, Biases & the Bottom-Line: Leadership Development Evolution That Drives Results (Live Online Class)

Larry Fink, the CEO of Blackrock, a global investment management firm, described in his open letter to CEOs how “a diverse mix of genders, ethnicities, career experiences, and ways of thinking have, as a result, a more diverse and aware mindset. They are less likely to succumb to groupthink or miss new threats to a company’s business model. And they are better able to identify opportunities that promote long-term growth.” As he is one of many CEOs across numerous industries that have seen significant bottom-line results from diverse viewpoints and perspectives, why do many engineering firms struggle to benefit from this? Culture and change both start at the top, and leaders must lead and act with intention, set performance standards, and hold everyone accountable for changing behaviors and organizational practices.

Join us for a timely session that will provide you with action-oriented best practices you can implement immediately to help your organization: discover how diversity of experience and ideas improves project and firm performance; overcome blind spots and biases by inspiring different behaviors and changing organizational practices; and evolve your leadership development to foster lasting positive change to your culture…and your bottom line.

Presenter: Chandra Storrusten, CEO & Chief Value Creation Officer, Visible Value
