Join us for a lunch and learn (lunch included!) with speaker and Enid native, Bill Fournet. Our greatest successes aren’t achieved with a perfectly laid-out plan. Instead, they are accomplished by how well we adapt to the obstacles we encounter along the way. As we continue to evolve how we work amidst unpredictable change, understanding the differences between the map versus the terrain is critical for creating a high-performing team. Think of your map as your plan for what you want to achieve and where you want to go. But in this everchanging world, the terrain is often unknown. This is where adaptability becomes key. Strategy is the map. Disruption is the terrain. In this transformative keynote, Bill leverages his experience not only as a Fortune 500 executive coach and consultant, but also as an avid and skilled backpacker. He illustrates how you can use three proven strategies to create a map for navigating any terrain and transforming obstacles into opportunities. Guided by this new understanding, you and your team will be better prepared to achieve your desired outcomes and will emerge stronger through any disruption.

Sexual assault and sexual misconduct are an ongoing and serious problem at schools across the country. According to the National Institute of Justice, about 1 in 5 women and 6% of men are victims of completed or attempted sexual assault while in college. There are more than 3,000 reports of forcible sex offences reported on college campuses every year. The U.S. Department of Education and its Office for Civil Rights regard these crimes as a serious violation Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, commonly referred to as “Title IX,” which was designed to prevent sexual discrimination in education. Since 1972 a number of additional, related laws have been passed with the goal of preventing and addressing sexual misconduct on school campuses, including most recently the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act. Failure to comply with these laws is also considered a violation of Title IX. These laws and regulations are important for protecting students, but they have created new and sometimes confusing obligations for schools and their employees. This course will help employees understand Title IX and its companion laws regarding sexual misconduct in education, and their role in helping to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct. This course is designed for all employees at educational institutions that fall under the provisions of Title IX, with particular focus on those designated Responsible Employees.
