In this new and ceaselessly shifting world of work, disruption creates the need for the redefinition of corporate suite accountability. As a partner to senior leadership, how can you advocate for, and champion, diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives? As leaders at the Executive Assistant level, you are ambassadors for change. You broadcast the right values, leading by example, motivating others and managing differences through your skills of persuasion, consolidation and innovation. Your judgment and discretion skills guide you in how and when to work behind the scenes for quiet victories. You demonstrate the qualities that define leadership: courage, tenacity, ethical standards and ongoing learning. You are results-oriented, particularly adept at knowing what resources are available, and how to make things happen on short notice. As you look at ways to elevate your role and align it with your corporate mission and goals, join us to strive to understand how you are uniquely positioned to support your organization’s efforts and accountability in this arena.
