An engaging lunch and learn gave attendees many tips for building meaningful, diverse connections at work and in your profession. The one-hour “Network Beyond Bias” presentation identified effective networking strategies that help you be more inclusive. One way, said presenter and certified change practitioner Amy Waninger, is to network like a CHAMP, which is an acronym for five people you need in your network. CHAMP stands for a customer, someone you helped get a job or hired, an associate, a mentor to you, and a protégé you’ve helped. Another acronym, IGGNORE, tells how to bring more points of view into your inner circle. To gain more insights, you can listen to the presentation available on Pinnacle.
