Manager Confessions: This Meeting Could Have been an Email

Session Type(s): Panel

Starts: Thursday, Oct. 7 1:00 PM (Eastern)

Ends: Thursday, Oct. 7 2:00 PM (Eastern)

Is “progressive manager” an oxymoron? Many of us have seen people in that role oppress and take advantage of others. And most of the resources out there are written by white, corporate-centric people. How do we challenge these olds patterns and systems? How do we live our values as progressives in management roles? This panel will explore our struggles and shortcomings, our aspirations, and how we can continue to push for the progressive movement to treat management as a hard skill, not an afterthought.
