Workplace Innovation Summit • 2020

Connect. Reflect. Reform.

Join us for five days of thought leadership around the future of how and where we work, including virtual keynote presentations, workshops, and networking opportunities, as we all seek to shape what happens next.

Let’s disrupt the workplace paradigm. The pandemic has accelerated the disruption — it’s not something to plan for, it’s here. It’s up to all of us to take advantage of this moment to create something new. A workplace that works for everyone. Can we create a workplace that’s equitable? Is it possible for a workplace to support employees with children? Can work be engaging and meaningful for every employee? Yes, yes, and yes. Even with all the change happening around us, it is an exciting time for the workplace — now we have a chance to design something new.

For our fifth annual Summit we’re switching the format from a 1-day conference to a 5-day virtual design expo. That means you can attend from anywhere in the world and learn from the experts, and become an expert yourself by engaging in meaningful conversations to develop your during- and post-COVID workplace strategy.

Dec 7 – Dec 11 • 11:00am – 5:00pm
