Hear You Roar, See You Soar
Unleashing the authentic diverse leader in you! We are all diverse and can lead at any level at all phases of our lives. This presentation will inspire attendees of all ages to self-reflect on their purpose, values, relationships and what they want their legacy to be as we explore the 3CCs (cultural chains, corporate chains, and community chains). How one should courageously “roar” to reinvent oneself to lead authentically, especially in the face of adversity. When you can be your unique self, it emboldens you to empower others while modeling the way to “soar” as a change agent making impact in your life, school, work and global community. Hear you roar, see you soar!
Meet Diversity’s Friends: Equity, Inclusion & Engagement
Diversity has become such a “buzz” word which makes it difficult for many to realize its value, let alone personally resonate with it themselves. Additionally, diversity in of itself is not the magic ingredient. In this thought-provoking presentation, we’re bringing the diversity pendulum back into balance! We’ll explore the strategic impact and value of leveraging diversity as an asset with equitable, inclusive and engaging solutions to ensure a successful journey in the workplace and/or region. Find out what kind of workplace/regional culture your journey has cooked up: a melting pot, layered salad or tossed salad.
Thawing the Frozen Middle
Middle managers over time have received a negative reputation for being keepers of the status quo. The reality is they are a vital layer to any organization as they have multiple touch points throughout the entity with diverse stakeholders impacting the workplace culture.
Additionally, due to globalization, technology and changing demographics, this makes the manager’s role even more critical as our workforce and marketplace are part of the global economy. This presentation will provide insightful tips and applicable tools to inspire middle managers to drive equity, diversity, inclusion & engagement while enhancing their global leadership skills.
Coming to America: The Spicy Curry in the Midwest
Experience an immigrant’s cultural journey from India in pursuit of the American dream! This presentation is an eye-opener interwoven with humor, passion, empathy and seriousness. Real experiences, dynamic stories and reflective thoughts highlighting the trials and tribulations of navigating the personal and professional dynamics of an immigrant growing up and living in today’s America. A presentation that will enthrall audiences of all backgrounds across all industries/organizations!
Sarika is a very engaging speaker, with much knowledge about Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity. The Greater La Crosse area, businesses and organizations really enjoyed her energy and incredible ability in bringing the audience together, and processing a true change in culture, towards a more inclusive community. We would have loved having extra time to learn more from her expertise.Arlette Rodriguez-Miller – Executive Director, The Greater La Crosse Area Diversity Council
Sarika Bhakta gave a very energizing and informative presentation to our National Association of Women in Construction Midwest Region conference as well as at our chapter meeting. You could tell she really took the time to tailor her presentations to our industry. Her interactive format spurred great thought-provoking discussion long after the conference and meeting were both over! Sarika is passionate about diversity, inclusion and engagement and that is obvious by the level of expertise and enthusiasm she brings to every presentation. I highly recommend having Sarika speak at your next conference as she is knowledgeable, refreshing and engaging!Darby Winger, President – National Association of Women in Construction, Chapter 160 Midwest Region
