This event, hosted by the Jackson Chamber, is called “Leading with Humanity,” alluding to how participants will be able to learn how to better develop better, stronger business practices through empathy and empowerment. It will be at Northwest High School, located at 4200 Van Horn Rd. We will include breakfast, lunch, and networking breaks throughout the day. There will even be an area certain for sponsors to set up booths to share their tips and insight when it comes to topics covered during the event, like staff and engagement.

Leading with Humanity will be led by Social Psychology and Management Professor, Jeffrey Sanchez – Burks, Ph.D. Dr. Jeffrey Sanchez - Burks is a Behavioral Scientist and the William Russell Kelly Professor of Business Administration at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. He received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology with a minor in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Michigan and has had visiting appointments at universities in Singapore, France, and Turkey.

Dr. Jeffrey Sanchez-Burks, Ph.D will have interactive sessions, giving practical tools. Trends show that change can be difficult in and out of the workplace. Creative problem-solving skills will help business leaders face both technical and human-related challenges faced in the workplace.

The topics being covered are improving company culture, adapting to a hybrid work environment, adapting to change, improving staff engagement, and more. Using evidence-based practices rather than buzzwords and trendy work topics, participants will be able to institute change in work cultures big and small.
