When we feel "belongingness," we experience not only connection and acceptance, but we feel that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. This series will explore concepts of belonging and othering, focusing on how we can foster more diverse and inclusive spaces for ourselves, our workplaces, and our communities.
Each month, Dr. Rebecca Baumgartner will present on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB), alternating fireside chats with interactive workshops. Although we encourage to come each month, you can start at any time.
By the end of this series you will have:
Started the internal work of belonging and self-acceptance
Learned and implemented inclusive leadership skills at home and at work
Identified the impacts of socialization on stereotypes and bias and ways to mitigate these
October's Session: Building Inclusive Cultures with Special Guest, Rashel Hughley
It has been proven that inclusive workplaces foster belonging, inspire innovation, and boost productivity. In fact, they outperform their competitors consistently. According to Deloitte research, organizations that have truly inclusive cultures are six times more likely to be innovative and six times more likely to anticipate and respond effectively to change.
But true inclusion must go beyond words and blanket statements; it must be seen, felt, and heard at every level. When employees lack trust in their organization’s efforts, they lose the sense of psychological safety.
Join us virtually on October 14th at Noon for a fireside chat with Dr. Rebecca Baumgartner and Rashel Hughley as they discuss how to build inclusive cultures.
