Spotlight Speaker Edgar Ndjatou (he/him) will present Resolving Workplace Conflicts.

Unresolved workplace conflicts prevent workplaces from functioning. Workplace conflicts lead to unhealthy work environments and contribute to low employee morale, low producitivty, and employee retention issues. This presentation will discuss the causes of most workplace conflicts, how they might impact a workplace, and tools or resources that leaders can use to sucessfully resolve conflicts to promote healthy work environments.


Originally from Cameroon and raised in New York City, Edgar Ndjatou (ja-too) is passionate about creating workplaces that value fair treatment, trust, and open communications. Edgar practiced employment law for nine years, including co-managing his own law firm. As an employment lawyer, Edgar represented, advised, and counseled clients in the federal, nonprofit, and private sectors. Officium helps organizations embed policies, procedures, and systems that achieve compliance with the numerous laws and regulations governing the employment relationship. The company also develops an effective human capital management strategy and infrastructure with recruiting and retention needs. As a result of working with Officium, organizations will make confident human capital management decisions that foster a healthy work environment and avoid costly mistakes. Edgar is also the Executive Director of Workplace Fairness, a workers' rights advocacy organization.


Equality Chamber of Commerce and the Equality Chamber Foundation, in collaboration with TraxMethod, strive to serve its members and the business community by providing educational and informational seminars. Our goal is to gather experts in our community to discuss topics critical to small businesses and organizations. 

We believe it is our responsibility to offer the community an opportunity to hear from experts so that they can make decisions based on the facts and facilitate factually-based discussions. We want to be a conduit through which the community can obtain information, drive discussions, and make their own decisions.

The Rise and Grind Speaker Series allows you to keep up on current events and topics of interest locally and regionally. Business owners, organizational leaders, HR professionals, marketers, and small businesses will find these topics helpful as they are designed to educate and inform about subjects that are relevant to your local business and non-profit community. In addition, business owners and organizational leaders can promote their business before the workday even begins. Also, these breakfasts focus on networking and give attendees the chance to exchange business cards and develop new prospects.
