In a world where we’re increasingly working and leading across cultural differences, how can we leverage and be more inclusive of these differences? How can we encourage our teams to “be yourself” at work, yet expect them to adhere to workplace culture? The key is authentic leadership – and authenticity is the key ingredient for inclusion. In this presentation, Ritu Bhasin, founder of bhasin consulting, inc, will uncover the profound connection between inclusion, leadership, and authenticity.
She will also discuss the latest neuroscience, leadership, diversity, and mindfulness research related to authenticity, how to leverage the Three Selves – an innovative concept for being more authentic and adaptive, and how leaders can build stronger, more inclusive relationships by being more of themselves at work.

Through her work, Ritu is committed to disrupting the status quo to build a world in which each of us celebrates our own differences and the differences of others.
