This year’s event theme ‘Lead with Empathy’ highlights the sentiment that HR and People leaders will need to take a deep look at the needs of their companies and employees, and update or develop new playbooks to help maintain performance while still driving a strong culture in the new world of work.

Lattice welcomes tennis legend, Serena Williams, as the 2021 featured speaker. Serena Williams is an internationally recognized figure whose name is synonymous with power and performance. Recognized as one of the greatest athletes of all time, her strength and resilience extends to her life off the court — from her challenging journey into motherhood to her redefinition of what it means to be a “working mom” to her success as an entrepreneur and investor. Serena will sit down with Lattice CEO, Jack Altman to talk about what fueled her passion to be an advocate for parental leave, female empowerment, and diverse representation in leadership. She’ll also share her advice on how to maintain a culture of high performance while building a culture of high empathy.
