Event Details

Black Lives Matter has prompted an examination of behavior and biases, particularly in the workplace. Hiring discussions inevitably start with, "I'm looking for a diverse candidate." But there's more. Implementing a long-term plan starting in your boardroom, in succession planning, in creating a talent management strategy to address these urgent issues are part of the discussion.

Lyndon's career has centered on addressing these issues. His work is with both privately held and publicly traded clients on executive, functional leadership and board director engagements. He advises organizations across sectors on diversity and inclusion strategies particularly talent management and succession.
