Webinar ‘Being Yourself Works’

On Thursday, June 18, 2020 the webinar ‘Being yourself works’ took place. Over 320 people watched the webinar live and we received good feedback about the content. That’s why you can watch the webinar back here!

This webinar starts with an accessible and engaging story by prof. Dr. Toon Taris – professor of organizational psychology at the University of Utrecht – about authenticity in the workplace. Toon lays a strong foundation on what authenticity, also known as “being yourself,” means exactly. Research shows people who are themselves and experience the space to express their feelings, behavior and external influence on a line, bring important positive effects. Think greater engagement with their employer, a happy and satisfied work attitude, and better ideas and innovations because of the room for creativity. But, authenticity can have a downside. How do you ensure that the authenticity of one person, does not come at the expense of another? And what if everyone is authentic and thus the ‘less fun aspects’ of work remain? This webinar will help you get started.

Afterwards (34:40), PwC, Alliander, Randstad, Rabobank and ABN AMRO will tell you how they successfully shaped Diversity Day 2019 and what their plans are for this year.
