What is different about #CULTUREBites

When you want to learn a foreign language, the secret is to immerse, surrounding yourself with those who are already fluent, and others who are on the same journey as you.  People who understand where you are coming from, understand your struggles, and can keep you taking action.

As Simon Sinek says, it’s not about intensity – how long you do something in one hit – but consistency – how regularly you do something. You don’t get strong after going to the gym once for 9 hours, you get strong after going for 20 minutes each day, month after month.

It’s just like that with #CULTUREBites. An initial commitment to intensity is good – that’s our all day #CULTUREConnectives immersion – but what really moves the needle is ongoing regular immersion and access to all the support you need.  That is why #CULTUREBites exists.

COMING UP

What’s the next topic?

 

Your Culture: “To go fast go alone, to go far, go together –

the power of unlocking diversity potential through Allyship.”

Having spent time in a refugee camp in Malaysia at the age of 4, Lynn Dang has a very personal perspective on how important Diversity & Inclusion is.   

And in her work at Microsoft as HR Lead, Lynn is a strong advocate for taking Microsoft’s D&I initiatives off the page, and into the hearts and minds of the team.  The work has impacted over 190,000 team members across the world. 

Join us this month at #CULTUREBites when Conversation Leader Lynn Dang will be leading the conversation, and sharing with us how Microsoft have embraced the concept of Allyship, and how they activate change at the individual and systemic level, and turn good intentions into good interactions.  And as a result, go further, together.

Look who’s leading the conversation

Lynn Dang

HR Lead, Microsoft Singapore & Vietnam

Lynn’s focus is on aligning the People and Culture strategy to Microsoft’s vision and mission.  She’s worked in the tech industry for over 15+ years with a keen passion for leadership development, improving the employee experience and creating a strong sense of empowerment and belonging in organisations to bring commercial success.

Lynn’s personal experience as a former Vietnamese refugee living in a refugee camp has inspired her work to ensure equality and opportunity for those in disadvantaged groups.  She is also a Board member for Australia for UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency).

#CULTUREBites is about you asking the questions you care about and having conversations with leaders who are making a difference in their workplaces every day, not simply sitting and listening to a speaker.   

So whilst our Conversation Leader will guide us through the session, you will co-create the discussion.

THE SESSION DETAIL

 

Our Conversation Leader is Lynn Dang, HR Lead at Microsoft Singapore & Vietnam

Topic: Your Culture: “To go fast go alone, to go far, go together – the power of unlocking diversity potential through Allyship.”

Date:  23 February 2022

Time:  12 noon to 2pm (Sydney time)

Venue: Zoom

Entry: Only members or prepaid guests can join the session

** GUEST INVESTMENT REDUCED

WHILST WE ARE VIRTUAL  **

A lot of people have already secured their #CULTUREBites membership.  It’s where we bring together a community of successful professionals and culture mavericks, and connect them in conversation.

And I’ll be honest, it’s not for everyone.

It’s only for people who want to make a real difference, develop their own leadership, learn from those doing it, and positively impact their workplaces. On the 3rd Wednesday of each month, over two hours, we have a different conversation leader, sharing the highs and lows and everything in between.

And most of those who have joined know me. They have seen me in action. They know the quality of what they are getting. That this is not just another event, not just another lunch, not just another networking session … they know it’s a space where they get to have deep conversations about things that matter, with people who they normally wouldn’t get time with. It’s different.

So, you might think that’s something you’d like to join straight away (and we’d love to have you). But if you’d prefer just to come along for one of the lunches first, to try it out … well here’s the sign up form for you to do just that. 

You might love it, and want more. And if you don’t … well, you’ll have had a nice lunch and a really interesting conversation with our culture mavericks, and the other leaders in the room.

 

To join us as a guest, it’s $120 plus GST ($132 inclusive of GST reduced to $40 plus GST ($44 inclusive of GST).  If you’ve got a coupon code, pop it in the box and the amount will reduce at the checkout. 

I look forward to seeing you there.
