Webinar: How to Create an Inclusive Work Culture

Tuesday, June 7, 2016 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT
Description: A good work culture is key to organizational effectiveness, and everyone has a role to play in creating an inclusive and positive work culture in their foundation. The cultural ‘feel’ of a work place comes from a compilation of many sources, including HR policies, hospitality practices, unspoken rules, holiday observances, and more.
Join us for a webinar with Beth Zemsky and Stephanie Andrews to explore how we can all actively contribute to creating an inclusive work culture and to learn from the Bush Foundation about how they have brought some of these ideas to practice in their organization.
Complementing our in-person offerings, MCF offers an educational webinar series focused on issues of importance for 21st century leaders in philanthropy. The Lunch and Learn webinar series will introduce grantmakers to some of the emerging trends in the field and will offer participants resources for continued learning.

Presenter Bios:
  • Stephanie Andrews, Bush Foundation. As Talent and Leadership Development Director at the Bush Foundation, Stephanie advances the Foundation’s significant investments in building and supporting talent in the Upper Midwest. She leads the Foundation’s human capital strategy, provides coaching and development support to Foundation staff and Bush Fellows and leads the Foundation's work with MCF’s Ron McKinley Philanthropy Fellowship, a multi-site program that provides an on-ramp into philanthropy for people traditionally underrepresented in the sector. Her work in leadership development draws on significant management and leadership experience in high profile and dynamic environments. Prior to Bush, Stephanie was deputy commissioner for Minnesota’s Department of Management and Budget, the agency responsible for a broad range of statewide initiatives and policy in finance, budget, leadership and workforce development and human resources. For more than a dozen years prior to being appointed deputy, Stephanie managed executive budget development for three administrations. Past experience also includes program evaluation at Abt Associates in Cambridge, Massachusetts and legislative relations in both Washington D.C. and Minneapolis. Stephanie earned a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and is a proud alum of the University of Minnesota. In 2005, she was a Humphrey Institute Policy Fellow. 
  • Beth Zemsky, Zemsky and Associates Consulting. With experience as a community organizer, educator, psychotherapist and organizational leader, Beth approaches her work with a deep commitment to engage people in learning activities that move them to understand critical social and cultural issues. Building on best practice approaches, Beth concentrates on intercultural organizational development with organizations working towards social change and structural transformation. Beth’s history includes serving as the principle of Zemsky and Associates Consulting, founding Director of the GLBT Programs Office and former Coordinator of Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness at the University of Minnesota. Beth has specialized training in intercultural competency, organizational development, systems change, change management, leadership development, intercultural conflict, mediation, assessment, and designing and implementing action learning programs. While Beth is passionate about her work, her spare time involves endorphin rushes from long distance bicycling, losing herself in cooking, and getting her hands dirty in her garden (growing more tomatoes than any person could possibly eat.)
