an advocate of one

In a world driven by grand gestures of justice and "cancel" culture, it's easy to overlook the opportunities to become a champion for others within seemingly mundane acts. In this session, you will learn how becoming intentional when waiting in line can be a powerful advocacy tool. 


Join Sybil Stewart, a former Global DEI practitioner, as she unravels the connection between advocacy and the queues we cannot avoid.In this engaging session, discover why advocacy starts with getting in line and how each of us has an opportunity to become an advocate of one. We'll delve into three fundamental principles that form the backbone of becoming an advocate and how a cup of coffee can change your life.


 By the end of this session, attendees will gain a new appreciation for the hidden lessons in life's queues and leave armed with the mindset and principles to become advocates of one without the fatigue that often accompanies proactively supporting others.

Sybil Keynote

Did you know that in the next 5 years, there will be a 68 BILLION DOLLAR transfer? Did you know women are set to be the inheritors of more than half of that wealth? We talk alot about generational wealth, now it's time to shift gears and introduce a concept that Sybil calls "Gender-rational".

With all this money on the table, women are going to have to quickly step up and learn their value, position themselves professionally and close the leadership gap.

Currently, women make up 47% of the workforce but only 24% of leadership positions are held by them. 

Is it the sticky floor or the glass ceiling? Let's find out in this session

what now? why now? what's next?

What does the Emperors New Clothes have to do with the future of work?


In this humorous and engaging experience, Sybil takes the audience on a different look at diversity. In fact, she will only use the word "diversity" once, yet audiences who attend say it is the "most refreshing" DEI training they have experience. 

Is it time to dump DEI? How are the six pillars of 5 genenerations, hybrind working, global markets, accessibility, and nontraditional entrants shapping work? Explore diversity with a new lens and take home actionable steps to create a cohesive workplace culture that benefits all.

No wonder she's been dubbed "the gentle voice on diversity".
