Speaking Topics
  • Next Generation Diversity: Global, Profitable, and Sustainable

    There is much uncertainty now about finance, healthcare, business and HR. The world is upside down, conventional wisdom is slipping into the realm of confusion, and the best practices of Diversity 1.0 have run their course. As a result, our global, hyper-competitive business environment requires that our workplaces adopt the next generation of diversity practices.

    In this presentation, Andrés Tapia describes key trends and strategies in diversity and inclusion and cross cultural competence that affect all businesses. In his riveting and passionate manner, Tapia shares the next framework for high impact diversity work and offers practical, groundbreaking approaches that business leaders can implement to harness the power of cross cultural competence – the critical ingredient for creating inclusive workplaces.

  • Are you Evil, a Moron, or Just Plain Incompetent

    Our lives resonate with stories. Since the beginning of humanity, people have used stories to pass information, history, and values from one generation to the next. Andres Tapia uses the power of stories – his own and others – to help audiences understand the stories behind our identities. This highly entertaining and humorous presentation enables audiences to recognize their similarities and their differences, and to call out those differences in constructive, diversity-enhancing ways. It is through our own cultural lenses that enable us to see others as evil, morons, just plain incompetent, or simply with a different worldview.

  • The Millennials: Why This Generation Will Challenge the Workplace like No Other

    We are not ready for our children to go to work. Yet employees of our children’s generation are already in the workforce. And our workplaces will never be the same. In this eye-opening discussion, Tapia explores how Millennials are affecting the workplace with their views on tenure, best practices, work/life balance, planning, and expectations. He explains what this younger generation wants and needs from supervisors and what they are prepared to give in return. This is a provocative discussion that will leave audiences reevaluating how they approach all employees, not just newcomers.

  • Women in Leadership: Why Current Best Practices Will Not Be Enough to Shatter the Glass Ceiling

    In much of the world, women represent half of the labor force. They have revolutionized the workplace with their presence, their perspectives, skills, and demands. Women have introduced new approaches to managing people and working collaboratively, and led the way to new benefits that support all employees. As a result, our corporations and countries have been enriched. Yet despite this reality, women still have a long way to go before reaching parity at the executive level.

    In this discussion, Tapia shares the breakthrough changes that are needed to advance greater numbers of women into the executive suite. He offers corporate leaders innovative ways of looking at the different perspectives and behaviors women bring to the workplace, while providing ways to discuss these differences openly and honestly with both women and men.

  • The Four Pillars of What Makes People of Color Stay and Thrive

    Many company recruiters have become quite adept at finding, courting, and hiring multicultural talent. Where this process collapses is retaining and training this same group of employees. Too often, and often much too quickly, heavily recruited minority employees depart after hitting the hidden barriers of exclusion. In this stimulating discussion, Tapia helps company leaders understand the aspects of corporate culture that weaken multicultural employees’ bonds to their companies. He helps companies find alternative ways to address the revolving door syndrome for multicultural talent.
