Keynote: Leveraging Your Culture as a Competitive Advantage

Whether you’re trying to grow your organization organically, through acquisition, or a combination of both, organizational culture has never been more critical. And while it’s never been more critical, it’s also never been more challenging. Remote and hybrid work, staffing shortages, and the shifting expectations of the workforce have forced many organizations to re-think how they create a culture that can attract and retain the best talent while still delivering high performance. How you can do it is the topic of our keynote presentation by renowned culture expert, David J. Friedman. Note that this is not your typical theoretical program extolling the virtues of a strong culture. Rather, you’re going to learn a methodology and specific actions steps you can immediately apply to systematically create a culture that can supercharge your success.

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how to “institutionalize” culture and make it more than just a sign on the wall.
  2. Distinguish the importance of behavior relative to values.
  3. Explain how to integrate cultures through mergers or acquisitions.

Straight From the Source: Factors Affecting Student Well-Being & Opportunities for Action

Student well-being has always been an area of concern for pharmacy educators, even before the pandemic introduced a new set of challenges to the academic experience, such as the difficulties of building and maintaining professional relationships and increased reliance on internet access and other forms of technology. In addition to the growing number of requirements necessary to obtain a degree in pharmacy, students have also faced multiple challenges outside of the classroom, including a highly competitive landscape of job and training opportunities, child and family caregiving responsibilities, work/life balance, growing debt burden, and outbreaks of social and political unrest in their communities and across the nation. In this interactive session, students will share some of the factors affecting their well-being. Attendees will then be introduced to pertinent sections of AACP’s Creating a Culture of Well-Being: A Resource Guide for Colleges and Schools of Pharmacy and encouraged to brainstorm action plans to improve student well-being at their institutions.

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. List supraindividual (e.g., organizational, societal, cultural) factors that may impact students’ well-being.
