The Power of Speaking Up
What if you knew a comet was heading straight for the Earth? How would you share the news?

If you’ve seen Second City alum Adam McKay’s newest film Don’t Look Up, you’re already thinking about the importance of speaking up. The destruction of life as we know it aside, being brave, speaking up, and empowering others to use their voices can create a culture of mutual respect, inclusion, and accountability in the workplace.

Join The Second City and "Why We Act: Turning Bystanders into Moral Rebels" author, speaker, and professor Catherine A. Sanderson for a fascinating conversation about how to create an inclusive organization that values and encourages employees to share their ideas, opinions, and concerns without fear of retaliation. You’ll also get to sample Real Biz Shorts, The Second City’s library of original videos that use laughter to cut through the jargon—so your messages connect with your employees.

In this webcast, you will learn:

● Why employees do not consistently share their thoughts about workplace issues or misconduct
● Why moral courage is so rare—and how it can be triggered or trained
● The different ways humor can change how we think and even how we act
