Designing Equitable Performance: How to Create Fair, Inclusive Assessments

Speaker: Aubrey Blanche & Sahra Kaboli-Nejad

We are all susceptible to bias and strive to mitigate it through reading, taking classes, and participating in trainings - yet, it seems like these aren’t driving the change we need. Women tend to receive vague, personality-based feedback, where men tend to receive performance related feedback. Work completed by Black men is more likely to be rated as lower quality than White men. And Black women face these overlapping biases in even more extreme ways. So what can we do to address the inequities in the system? Look at the system itself - are we designing an equitable performance system that benefits everyone? Join Culture Amp’s Global Head of Equitable Design and Impact, Aubrey Blanche, along with Diversity, Equity, and Belonging Lead Sahra Kaboli-Nejad, to discuss how we can re-evaluate our performance management systems. We will discuss the benefits of designing a system at every level (individual, manager, and organization) to help mitigate bias and ultimately create a system that finally succeeds at what it is supposed to do - improve performance.

C-Suite Succession Planning—This is as Important as it Gets!

Speaker: Jim Bitterle and Jen Giannosa

Succession planning is always important for organizations. However, planning for C-Suite transitions is critical. In smaller, privately-held organizations, transitions to second generation leaders have a whopping 60% failure rate. Transitions to third generation leaders fail nearly 90% of the time. In larger organizations, C-Suite transitions typically lead to sustained performance, or performance decline.
