Fusion 2.0 brings together leaders and change-makers from multiple disciplines to break down silos and create more human experiences at work. We support diversity, equity, and inclusion by providing a safe space for people to come together, recharge, and learn new ways to lead and influence positive change.

More than 200 people from 34 states and 3 countries attended the 3-day event in November 2018.

Conference Experience

Fusion 2.0 is unlike any other event and addresses the gaps left by many conferences. We designed Fusion 2.0 to feature world-class, diverse speakers, actionable content, and purposeful networking opportunities to foster meaningful relationships and community-building.

Come as You Are

Fusion 2.0 is a safe space for people to come together and learn new ways to lead and influence positive change. We embrace our community through diversity, equity, and inclusion. Discover your values and purpose while connecting with other professionals united under a similar vision for a better, more human workplace.

Purposeful Networking

Forget token networking. We put great intention into bringing together people from multiple disciplines to break down silos. Fusion 2.0 ensures purposeful networking opportunities that foster meaningful connections with others to support building a true community of people-first leaders.

Practical, Interactive Sessions

Our sessions focus on practical application, offer tips and tools you can use as soon as you get back to work, and you'll leave with an implementation plan. You can also earn continuing education credits for the sessions you attend.

Post-Conference Support

We will help you carry the energy of Fusion 2.0 as you return home. All attendees will receive a post-conference learning summary, ongoing access to the Virtual Event Center for 90 days, plus email support with practical tips and resources for four months.

Conference Learning Tracks

Conference tracks align with one of the following five Rehumanizing Principles that are essential for transforming workplaces and communities.

  • build-lighthouse-yellow
    Build a Lighthouse
    We can find energy and calm in the midst of the uncertainty of the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) storms by illuminating and clarifying our purpose and vision and anchoring our behaviors in our core values. This track is about the value of clarifying and leveraging a strong purpose, operationalizing core values and how to keep them front and center to guide people and create a cohesive and meaningful work experience.
  • create-fearless-green
    Create Fearless Environments
    In order to adapt and thrive, we need everyone to feel safe contributing their ideas, asking for help, and speaking up with concerns. Thriving teams aren’t all unicorns and rainbows; they speak up about hard things. This track is about the value of nurturing physical and psychological safety and how it can be fostered to create environments where people can thrive and maximize their impact on all stakeholders.
  • wade in messy middle
    Wade in the Messy Middle
    Our VUCA world demands that we shift our mindsets and grow and adapt in ways like never before. Our inner game (mindset, beliefs) runs our outer game (behaviors, skills). We must upgrade our inner game; and there is no shortcut. We have to embrace the discomfort and do the work to move from reactive, armored and self-protective to intentional and effective. This track is about the messiness of being human and change and what it takes to support people and organizations to navigate this journey.
  • show-up-leader-purple
    Show Up as a Leader
    Leadership is maximizing our positive impact on the world by becoming our best, fully authentic selves and supporting those around us to break past barriers and step into their greatness. Every one of us has the opportunity to (and needs to) show up as leaders in our lives and influence positive change. This track is about creating opportunities for people to show up as leaders (regardless of their roles) in an authentic way, rethinking how we develop people, and what’s possible when we enable and support people to be more effective and grow their impact.
  • find-your-tribe-red
    Find Your Tribe
    This is not a solo journey! We are hardwired to be in connection with others. We must intentionally seek out others who are different from us and build and nurture community; then we can leverage that energy to influence and lead positive change. This track is about building community, leveraging diverse relationships to foster meaningful change, and everything related to creating workplaces that support diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
