The WorldatWork 2020 Workplace Equity Forum will include plenary and breakout sessions, structured networking, interaction with vendors in an expo hall setting and technology demos.
Speakers will be selected who can help attendees:
Professionals responsible for compensation and Total Rewards at various levels, from leaders to individual contributors, plus CHROs, consultants, diversity and inclusion pros, HR generalists and business partners, recruiters, HR tech professionals and data analysts.
Three learning tracks and approximately 20 sessions will explore the path to workplace equity:
The event will feature sessions that are 30 and 60 minutes. Each submission must specify one session format.
We value an educational learning experience that showcases thought leadership and practical solutions and does not promote commercial content and delivery.
Engaging Learning Experience
We want to deliver an engaging audience experience with creative learning methods and tangible takeaways that empower attendees to drive change in their organizations.
We are looking for new ideas, research and leading-edge content that encourages attendees to view this workplace challenge from a new perspective.
Practitioner Success Stories
We place a high value on hearing the perspectives of internal Total Rewards and HR Practitioners – either independently or with other partners (including consultant/experts) who have helped pave the way to success at their organizations.
We are looking for fresh, original and current content; please, no replays of prior webinars or other presentations.
Successful proposals are based on a relevant topic, concept or idea, and not on products, services or proprietary information.
What is WorldatWork looking for in a speaker?
Our submission process is very competitive. We use a content advisory committee to review and score proposals and to determine selections based on the proposal and speaker priorities mentioned previously.
The abstract and learning objectives that you provide are critical to the selection process. The committee relies on this information to understand exactly what will be delivered to attendees.
Speaker information is essential, to understand the speaking style, professional expertise and diversity of perspective that will be part of the session.
Acceptance and decline emails will be sent by May 25, 2020.
Speaker benefits include visibility and recognition as a thought leader, and the opportunity to help peers bring best-in-class solutions to their workplaces. You will receive a complimentary event registration so you can attend all sessions and meals and network with peers during event.
In addition, if you’re a practitioner, academic or nonprofit organization representative, WorldatWork will cover the costs of up to a two-night stay at a host hotel. (Consultants and service providers are not eligible for lodging reimbursement.) No other expenses will be reimbursed.
WorldatWork is committed to creating and delivering high-quality events through objective, ethical and fair practices that prioritize diversity of thought and a desire to bring the most valuable learning and networking experiences to our audiences. Our association is fueled by strong relationships with the best thought leaders in the industry. However, we do not give special preference to individuals, consulting firms, vendors, companies or sponsors. Through fair sourcing of objective content, we address our stakeholders’ most important needs. It is how we maintain WorldatWork as the leader in Total Rewards and advance the impact that Total Rewards professionals have on their organizations, communities and society-at-large.
Speakers must provide a marketing abstract (100 words) that succinctly summarizes the session. This abstract will appear on the event website. Entice people to attend with clever titles and appealing descriptions. All abstracts are subject to internal editing by WorldatWork.
You are invited to submit as many proposals for the event as you wish.
Some may choose to submit many proposals because they have broad experience and expertise to share. This approach is beneficial, as it provides the selection committee with more choice and options to fit the submission into the event. However, the quantity of submissions will not influence the final number of selected proposals from any one organization or presenter.
Generally, speakers will be limited to one concurrent session to invite diverse perspectives. Exceptions may be made at WorldatWork’s discretion.
It is an honor to be selected as a speaker at our event, and the expectation is that you will stay to learn, interact and network for the duration. Before you submit a proposal to speak, please make sure all speakers are available and holding the event dates on their calendars.
We look forward to receiving your proposal. Click the “submit” button below to set up your account and begin the submission process in our portal.
