The Collapse of a Culture... "Lessons from Enron"

Cindy Kay Olson
CEO, Leadership Accelerated

Cindy Kay Olson started at the ground floor of Enron, a Fortune 7 company, and rose to its 20 person executive committee. She experienced the euphoria of being part of the leadership team that has received countless accolades for being one of the best places in America to work, as well as one of the most innovative, only to see it all come crashing
down in a matter of months.

The first Enron executive to testify in front of the United States House and United States Senate, Cindy authored the book, “The Whole Truth So Help me God”. She witnessed the demise of one of the most complex and successful businesses in recent American History. Through her unique experiences, she helps companies avoid the consequences of a corporate culture that turns toxic with greed and arrogance, and coaches companies to truly listen to their employees.

Gender Partnership: Healthcare's Imperative for the 21st Century

Mike Kaufmann & Rayona Sharpnack

Mike Kaufmann, Chief Executive Officer, Cardinal Health

Mike is a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion and often speaks about gender equity. His support of women leaders in healthcare led to the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association naming Kaufmann as its 2012 “Honorable Mentor” and the Institute for Women’s Leadership awarding him the 2014 “Guys Who Get it Award.”

Rayona Sharpnack, Founder & CEO, Institute for Gender
Partnership™ and Institute for Women’s Leadership

Rayona has been teaching and consulting on Women’s Leadership, Diversity/Inclusion, and Gender Partnership for 25+ years. She is one of the first in the nation to foresee that “more women” isn’t the sole solution to an organization’s problems. Rather, it is more women and men working in partnership and leveraging each other’s strengths that will make a difference in the profits and productivity of our companies—and our world.
