Diversity & Inclusion (Live)
As we live our lives and learn, connect, work full-time online, ensuring that our use of technology is fair, inclusive and safe for all involved is essential. Meet the authors of the book for an interactive panel discussion where the authors share their experiences of creating psychological safety, giving non-violent feedback, embracing diversity and creating belonging in the online world.
Specifically, we will explore, what can hosts/facilitators/teachers/meeting organizers and participants do to create safety and belonging in the online workplace.

I imagine a world where anyone, whatever their color, gender, race, or personality, can be their best authentic selves – at home and work – it doesn’t matter where they are. The citizens of tomorrow will have plentiful access to opportunities for learning and contribution. Everyone will have supportive role models and mentors to realize their dreams; they won’t have to pretend to be anyone different than themselves at work.
The truth is, we still have to work hard to achieve this dream. Despite growing up in an ex-Soviet state and having chosen a tech career, I had the luck of finding the right supportive mentors at the right time. Now, it is on us to help others, who need us to be more visible, advocate possibility, and offer support when needed.
I advise and coach leaders and managers in Tech, governments, and nonprofits undergoing digitization. We rethink and redesign organizational processes and practices to create a genuinely people-centered, inclusive workplace.
I invite you to start living this vision via everyday actions – to welcome all forms of diversity in, to encourage psychological safety, and to be out there, speaking about your story.
As a behavioral scientist and passionate agilist, I draw from the fields of Psychology, Behavioral Science, Complexity thinking, and Agile Coaching to help leaders and teams develop customized ways of collaborating and working that lead to a higher degree of business agility.
As a leadership and business agility coach, I help managers, leaders & HR professionals to develop proficiency in leading and coaching with agility.
An explorer at heart and passionate about learning, a key driver for me is curiosity… to constantly pursue innovation in ways of collaborating and working in the areas of Leadership, Team collaboration, and Agile HR.
I favor an evidence-based, boundary-spanning approach; I believe strongly in exploring and experimenting with how ideas, methods, and principles from different fields and disciplines can cross boundaries and form fresh solutions to the complex problems we are dealing with today.

Jenny is an Agile People Coach who really believes in what she does and is passionate about it. Therefore, she never gives up; she just looks for other ways on the journey! She likes to learn, and she learns something new every day, and she tries to pass it forward. She adapts to her audience, starts from where they are, and tries to live as she teaches.
Coaching leaders in new ways of working, with an agile approach, and helping them coach employees, is what she is most passionate about! All “soft questions” interest her, such as self-leadership, internal driving forces, and other personal development topics.
She has been an Agile coach since 2012, and what a personal journey it has been! At first, she coached teams and understood early that we need to coach all managers and involve HR, finance, and controllers because Agile is not just another method – it affects the whole organization. Most of all, she understood that the most important thing is the interaction between people and cultural change. That’s why she became an Agile People Coach, not just an Agile coach.
