Conscious Calendar

    • January 25, 2022
    • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    • Zoom (info sent in confirmation email)

    Creating and maintaining a caring and high performing culture was a delicate balancing act pre-pandemic. Now, businesses are even more challenged to strike the right balance amidst rising mental health issues and hybrid workspaces. Layer on other fast-moving factors such as AI, climate change and social unrest, and some businesses are truly struggling with how to successfully craft a conscious culture at their organization.

    In this event, we bring you two experts to guide you in your thinking and action plan for cultivating a conscious culture in your workplace in 2022.

    Dr. Allessandria Polizzi, CEO of Verdant Consulting and 20-year veteran of corporate HR, will share why teams are in crisis, as well as the latest in science-based approaches for building a thriving culture that drives performance. She will be joined by Rachael Kelly, Chief People and Culture Officer for Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill, located in 16 states. Throughout her tenure, Rachael has driven a “firey” culture based on authenticity and human-centric leadership. She and Dr. Al will share their experiences in engaging employees, understanding trauma-informed employees, and facing challenges head on to create a flourishing culture.



    Dr. Allessandria Polizzi, CEO of Verdant Consulting

    Allessandria brings two decades of human capital executive experience, as well as the latest in resiliency-building, burnout hazard reduction and post-pandemic workplace strategies.

    Rachael Kelly, Chief People & Culture Officer of Smokey Bones

    Rachael is responsible for end-to-end human capital management, facilitating an employee-engaged culture, and serving as a trusted member of the executive team who guides the organization to achieve its strategic goals. Extensive experience in the operational and human resources fields, having worked executive roles in global public corporate and franchised organizations, award winning start-up concepts, and now in the private equity space. Beginning her career as an hourly employee, Rachael brings a unique vision, pragmatic approach, and bias for execution.  

    • February 03, 2022
    • 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
    • Zoom (info provided in confirmation email)

    Business leaders today must help their organizations perform while making changes on potentially charged issues: addressing structural racism, dealing with vaccine and mask mandates, attending to the organization's environmental impact, etc.  Managers and employees sometimes voice dramatically different perspectives on these issues which can threaten meaningful change, disrupt organizational harmony and alienate them from one another.  How can leaders help their organizations explore these issues consciously with care, empathy and skill while also driving performance?  

    Expert facilitator Kelsa Summer Roidt, Chief Operation and Impact Officer and Facilitator from Habitus Incorporated, will work with us to explore the mindset, skills and approach for the specific charged topics most relevant to the group.

    Steve Helle, CEO of Granite City Electric will be first up dialoging with Kelsa about examples of leading through charged issues at his company. Then, we’ll be opening up the floor for additional dialogue and questions from attendees.

    **We hope to hold this event in-person and will fully abide by city guidelines for in-person gatherings. As such, we will be following the vaccine mandate required for indoor spaces after January 15th in Boston. The Boston College Club will be checking vaccine status upon entry. The following are accepted forms of proof:

    • A CDC vaccination card

    • A digital image of your CDC card

    • An image of any official immunization record

    • A City of Boston app or any other COVID vaccine verification app

    And, to keep attendees as safe as possible, we will be limiting seating to our event. Your registration will be pending availability. Thank you for understanding.**
