    ATDps: May 2021 Virtual Member Event

    What’s the best presentation, event or meeting you’ve recently attended or seen? What was impactful that you left the event thinking, wow as you walked away? Was it the PowerPoint slides, the font size, the color scheme, the charts? No, it was the story behind those charts, the story behind the data that truly captivated you and made you feel as if you were part of the presentation or ready to take action. Take some time this May 18th at 4 PM PST to hear from subject matter experts, Susan J Grella and Buu Lam, on how to entertain, educate and inspire through impactful storytelling!

    Susan Grella is an award-winning creative producer and animator. As Associate Producer of Vulcan Productions, a media company founded by the late philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Paul G. Allen, Grella served a wide range of acclaimed, cause-based documentary feature films and series including School of Hope (2021), Youth v Gov (2021 winner of the Cleveland International Film Festival), Chasing the Thunder (2019), and Academy Award® nominated documentary film Hunger Ward (2020). Grella also produced a number of 360° films including Guardians of the Kingdom (2019), Seattle Seahawks: The Art of the Play (2018), Death Planet Rescue (2018) and Justin Timberlake’s Montana (2018) experiences for the Museum of Pop Culture.

    Prior to joining Vulcan Productions, Grella was a Senior Licensing Coordinator for Microsoft’s award-winning Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon video games for the Xbox console and PC.

    Grella belongs to Women in Animation, Latina Geeks, and Future for Us organizations dedicated to the advancement of women in the fields of animation, technology, and other professional spaces.

    Inclusive & Emotionally Intelligent Leadership

    Emotional intelligence is one of the most fundamental strategic skills for effective leadership, and in our current environment, the ability to connect with others is more important than ever before.  While self-awareness and the ability to manage oneself is a piece of that, understanding and influencing others is essential.  Being successful requires a leadership mindset that embraces empathy and diversity.  In this engaging 1-hour program we will discuss the four aspects of emotionally intelligent leadership with an emphasis on inclusivity. Specifically, we'll review:

    • Emotional intelligence: your strategic asset

    • The 6 behaviors of inclusive leaders and how they overlap with emotional intelligence

    • Managing yourself

    • Partnering with others

    • The new lens of inclusion post-Covid and returning to work

    • Expressing empathy 

    Participants will receive a complimentary consultation with Sarah Eppink, Principal & Founder of Aisling Group, LLC and certified leadership coach.




    Sarah founded Aisling Group LLC, a leadership development consulting and  professional coaching firm, to support individuals and organizations in their  journey towards realizing their vision. Sarah is a dynamic, engaging professional  who exudes passion for supporting others and organizations as they reach their  goals. She is able to connect with all levels of the organization and is an authentic  leader. Sarah has nearly 20 years of designing and executing development  programs that support organizational and personal change.
