DE&I Landscape for Community Banks
Naomi Mercer, SVP, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, American Bankers Association
2 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and social change movements, a deliberate, effective approach to diversity, equity and inclusion is more of a business imperative for banks than ever and an important reflection of community commitment. Naomi discusses the role DE&I issues have played in the crises and how banks can refocus on DEI moving forward. Bankers will develop a deeper understanding of DE&I, how to get started or move forward with initatives in your bank and how to help build a more inclusive future for banking.
The New Normal: Five Patterns that Will Change and Five that Might
Chris Kuehl, Managing Director, Armada Corporate Intelligence
9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1
The five areas that will see change (in Chris’ estimation) will be global supply chain, employment patterns, use of technology for work and at home, role and reach of government and status of globalization. The five that might would include consumer behavior, state of capital and lending markets, role of education and training, political direction and orientation and the role of the medical community.
This presentation is designed to be more forecast centered and to pose strategic questions as opposed to reporting on the latest nuance in the economy and the latest development in the virus battle. If there are significant developments in either sphere, Chris will address these.

Leveraging Fundamism Through Seasons of Change
Paul Long, FUNDAMISM
What’s GOOD?! The World Health Organization states there has been a 13% rise in mental health conditions over the last decade. That number doesn’t reflect the most recent challenges our world has faced. Individuals around the globe are longing for human connection in an environment that’s leaning more heavily on virtual interactions.
What commitment are you willing to make to help your staff create more meaningful relationships to improve mindset, productivity and organizational culture? Ultimately, are you willing to focus more on what’s GOOD as opposed to what isn’t?
Paul provides participants real-life, tactical methods that will help generate improved quality of life. If (according to the WHO) approximately one in five people in post-conflict settings has a mental health condition, we should prepare ourselves with how to effectively handle these situations in a time riddled with conflict. Arming individuals with the necessary techniques to interrupt negative brain patterns and replace them with thoughts of joy, FUN and fulfillment could be a life-altering moment for many in your organization.
