Shifting Mindsets to Build Cross-Functional Buy-in

This interactive workshop session will be co-hosted by Shannon and Mario GonzalezCemex‘s Head of Social Innovation:

Mario and Shannon traveled to 12 cement plants in 9 countries in Europe and the Caribbean to shift mindsets of cross-functional teams about social innovation. In only 1.5 day workshops they used empathy and role playing, “stepping into the shoes of their 500+ stakeholders”, to realize step changes in commitment and creativity of their operational teams on-the-ground. Rolling out a global CSR strategy was a bottom-up intervention, not top-down. Come and roll up your sleeves to learn how Mario and Shannon reached the “un-converted” to get them understanding and even leading the journey towards sustainable business.
