Adventures in Turning Around Toxic Work Environments: Real Case Studies from the Trenches

Craft Brewers Conference 2023
Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Speakers: Catherine Mattice

Harassment, sexual harassment, bullying, aggression, discrimination, and plain ol’ bad behaviors occur when an organization’s culture allows it to. Training programs can’t solve the problem unless the organization is willing to hold people accountable to better behavior. That means a culture shift is needed in order to truly make positive change. Join Catherine Mattice, award-winning author, speaker, and blogger on these topics, as she provides insight about toxic cultures and delivers tangible action steps for turning them around.

Learning Objectives:

  • With several case studies as examples, attendees will be able to: Clearly discuss how toxic cultures come to exist, and why people engage in bad behavior at work Define ways in which an organization can understand its culture and risks for toxic behavior Develop a clear and tangible plan for change once the culture is understood Implement some turnkey suggestions immediately upon returning from the conference Understand the vast ways in which legal obligations to address discrimination and harassment fall short, so that you can move past using them to measure success
