8:35 am - 9:10 am Shifting from Human Capital to Social Capital

To edge out the competition in today’s disruptive environment, you need to ensure that your company is agile―that it can respond to change instantly and effectively. Based on hundreds of interviews and multitudes of organizational network studies, this session will focus on how to position your company for today―and for the future―by enabling creativity, innovation, and novel ideas to flow freely among teams, across departments, and throughout the company. This presentation will showcase how the use of network analysis can enable organizations to better understand how social capital helps to initiate, develop and amplify ideas. Focus will be placed on how to facilitate the interplay between three very specific network roles—brokers, connectors, energizers and connectors--to enable agility.

11:20 am - 11:50 am Creating a Workforce that Mirrors America

Many companies and industries truly understand the value of having a diverse workforce, but still find themselves with workforces that are demographically homogenous.  The PGA of America and the $84 billion golf industry found themselves in that situation.  As they aspire for the sport of golf to become ‘exclusively inclusive’ in every regard, they recognize that will only be possible if the golf industry’s workforce becomes reflective of America’s multicultural consumer base.     
  • Learn how the PGA of America structured and deployed PGA WORKS; a strategic initiative designed to diversify the golf industry’s workforce.
Gain insight on how to structure unique approaches to increase awareness, accessibility and accountability when deploying your workforce diversification initiative.
