    Lee Riley

      Making Organizations Better




    Employees bring many skills to the workplace and yet adaptive skills are the most fundamental and arguably the most important over time.  These are the skills we brought with us from childhood and they have an impact on everything we do, professionally and personally.  Think of adaptive skills as a tangible expression of our emotional quotient (EQ).

    Consider the following common behaviors: the inability to receive negative feedback without getting defensive, consistently avoiding conflict or difficult conversations, trouble managing strong emotions, talking over others in meetings, and so on.  It’s not difficult to see that our adaptive skills are intertwined with virtually everything we do and it’s this complexity that makes them difficult to coach.  And yet, coach we must since so much is impacted by employees who are struggling here, especially when they hold leadership roles.

    In this presentation we'll discuss:

    • Understanding adaptive skills and their impact on workplace culture
    • Adaptive skills and EQ, what’s the difference?
    • How do I grow in my adaptive skills? 
    • Adopting the mindset needed to effectively coach adaptive skills

    Hannah Febach

    Washington State
    Department of Health


    The first COVID-19 vaccines are here. This vaccine is one of the best tools we have to help us through the pandemic and to resume normal business operations.  As HR managers look to guide their organizations through this unprecedented time, it would be helpful to understand the state’s plan for COVID-19 vaccine distribution and be able to provide relevant information back to their organizations.


    In this presentation we'll discuss:

    • Washington state’s COVID-19 vaccine response. 
    • The vaccine candidates authorized for use at this time.
    • Vaccine safety and monitoring efforts.
    • The progress in the state, the state's COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, and corresponding allocation framework. 


    About Hannah:

    Hannah joined the Washington State Department of Health in January 2020 as a Senior Policy Analyst. She is the policy lead for the Department’s COVID-19 Vaccine Response Team. She began her career in public health working for a nonprofit assisting those affected by HIV. After receiving her graduate degree, she transitioned to working for the state. Hannah holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Women’s & Gender Studies from Pacific Lutheran University and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from The Evergreen State College. Hannah believes that government best serves the public when policies are created and implemented through the lens of democratic governance. In her free time, she enjoys running, cooking, and adventuring with her partner, Cody.

    Dr. Jen O’Ryan

    Inclusion and Diversity Strategist




    We know inclusion and diversity (I&D) is a good thing.  We know it leads to innovation and better outcomes.  We don’t always know where, or how, to begin.  This session provides actionable advice on safely and effectively designing I&D initiatives, things to avoid, and strategies to bring others along on the journey.

    Dr. Jen O’Ryan, author and I&D strategist, will walk you through the top things you can start (and stop) doing right now.  This session will cover actions you can take with little to no budget, and how to influence change across organizational levels.   We’ll also talk through common themes around why initiatives with the best intentions can sputter out or fail.

    Whether you are one person working with zero budget or have funding and an enthusiastic team supporting the effort, there is something in here for you.

    This presentation will provide you with:

    1)   Actionable steps to cultivate inclusion, even with little to no budget or resources

    2)   The ‘why’ behind the ‘how’ of designing inclusion

    3)   Steps and areas to improve inclusiveness in materials, policy, and training content

    4)   Identify (and mitigate) elements that can tank even the best Inclusion and Diversity initiatives


    About Jen:

    Dr. Jen O’Ryan is an Inclusion and Diversity strategist, specializing in the LGBTQ+ community.  Leveraging two decades of experience in change management and a PhD in Human Behavior, she understands the challenges leaders can face in developing a culture of inclusiveness for LGBTQ+ employees, clients, and consumers.

    She is also the author of Inclusive AF: A Field Guide for “Accidental” Diversity Experts.  Designed for anyone thinking about inclusion and diversity, IAF explains how to cultivate a workplace more welcoming for LGBTQ+ individuals – and for everyone else.
