The Art of Allyship: How Leaders Create Inclusive Cultures by Calling Others In

Tuesday, April 17, 2018   |   5:00 - 7:00 pm
Wells Fargo Learning Center, 333 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94105

In today’s highly charged, complex environment, leaders have the opportunity to create a new paradigm that goes beyond calling others out… to calling others in, jointly transforming culture.

During this interactive session, you will learn about the art of building alliances through acknowledging your own biases, recognizing acts of micro-aggression, and cultivating psychological safety so individuals and teams thrive. Leading-edge organizations are taking steps to create organizational cultures that facilitate deep learning, openly share mistakes, and practice relentless curiosity. As a leader, you will understand what it takes to courageously lead others in this way, apply best practices, and begin to develop skills that will impact results, relationships, and processes in your organizations.

Our speaker is Pamela Hopkins, Ph.D., Owner, Executive Consultant and Managing Partner of Enact. The event is co-sponsored by Wells Fargo MTMN.

On Friday, October 6 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco, FWSF honored Robin L. Washington, EVP & CFO, Gilead Sciences, Inc., as the FWSF 2017 Financial Woman of the Year.

Robin took the stage. As she empowered us with the "top ten lessons she would share with her 20, 30 and, hell, 40-something-year-old self,” David Letterman style, we learned, grew and were inspired. Robin, thank you for being a truly authentic leader and role model for women (and men) pursuing careers in Finance everywhere. Read full article.
