    LinkedIn Speaker Series: Kenji Yoshino

    LinkedIn Speaker Series: Kenji Yoshino

    Trying to say the exact right thing can feel overwhelming at times, and it may even cause us to feel stuck when it comes to moving from having good intentions to taking concrete action. That’s what this Speaker Series event is all about—giving us the tools to have constructive, compassionate conversations across differences.
    Our own Blake Lawit, SVP and general counsel, will sit down with Kenji Yoshino, Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law at NYU School of Law, to discuss the nuanced subject of his new book (co-authored with David Glasgow), Say The Right Thing: How to Talk About Identity, Diversity, and Justice. Together, they will explore how we can move from potentially unconsciously hurting people when we communicate, to consciously helping them.

    LinkedIn Speaker Series: Will Guidara

    LinkedIn Speaker Series: Will Guidara

    Restaurateur Will Guidara was 26 when he took over as manager of Eleven Madison Park (EMP), a struggling NYC brasserie that had never quite lived up to its majestic location. Within a decade, EMP was named the best restaurant in the world.
    How did Will pull off this unprecedented transformation, and what did he learn about business leadership along the way? As it turns out, every business can choose to be a hospitality business—and we can all transform ordinary transactions into extraordinary experiences and lasting relationships, within teams and with our clients. 
    Jann Schwarz, head of LinkedIn's B2B Institute and one of Will Guidara's frequent collaborators, will lead a conversation with Will about his new book, Unreasonable Hospitality: Giving People More Than They Expect, and uncover Will’s secrets on how to become a better relationship builder and charismatic convener of any group of people.

    LinkedIn Speaker Series with Seth Godin

    On Learning InDay, we have an epic opportunity to hear from Seth Godin, blogger, author, entrepreneur, author, and founder of The Carbon Almanac, a global movement to educate and lead urgent action on the climate crisis. 
    This group, a collaboration between hundreds of writers, researchers, thinkers, and illustrators has published a powerful tool by the same name that focuses on what we know, what has come before, and what might happen next with our global climate. It’s a remarkably readable and impactful exploration of climate science to help ensure we all know the facts about this complex subject.
    In our live session, we’ll discuss the biggest lessons from The Carbon Almanac and why it isn’t too late for us to make a positive impact on climate change—if we act now. And we’ll gain insight from Seth on leadership and group dynamics to improve the way we work on a daily basis.

    LinkedIn Speaker Series with Susan Cain

    Join us as LinkedIn's Vice President of Global Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging, Rosanna Durruthy sits down with Susan Cain to discuss her new book, Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole, the power of a bittersweet, melancholic outlook on life, and why our culture has been so blind to its value. 
    Her previous bestseller, Quiet, urged our society to cultivate space for the undervalued, indispensable introverts among us, revealing an untapped power hidden in plain sight. Now, she uses the same mix of research, storytelling, and memoir to explore why we experience sorrow and longing, and the surprising lessons these states of mind teach us about creativity, compassion, leadership, spirituality, mortality and love.
