Meeting Room 301B FOUNDATIONS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Dr. Markeeva Morgan, The Boeing Company

Oklahomans rely upon politeness to conduct business. While this will often help us maintain the status quo, politeness as a fallback method does not automatically lead to progress. During periods of simple, consistent, or radical change, there are times when a traditional approach isn’t enough. How can we lead strategic diversity, equity & inclusion efforts when stakeholders are focused on being polite? Let’s talk about pushing the envelope from politeness to progress. Come to this session to experience an interactive, brave, uncomfortable and safe space for dialogue.

Drawing from a career spanning the U.S. Navy to NASA to The Boeing Company, Dr. Markeeva Morgan will share lessons and insights he’s learned throughout his career that remain foundational to his current style and continued development. TRACK: IMPROVING YOUR SKILLS
