Keynotes, Breakouts, and Demos


Keynote: Moments that Matter in a Flexible and Inclusive Workplace– Amy Coleman, CVP, Microsoft
Where: Oceanside C
When: Tuesday, October 10 from 8:00AM – 8:45AM


Study after study shows that an increasing percentage of employees expect the best of both worlds—flexible work arrangements and the high-touch of in-person connection. But how can organizations achieve both? New Microsoft research shows that it’s not about the number of days in the office, but about making the in-person moments meaningful so that employees feel connected, valued, and inspired. Our opening keynote explores a data over dogma approach to creating inclusive flexible work policies that foster belonging and purpose, as well as research around three specific moments when in-person time can be most beneficial.
