VIRTUAL | DEIB with Dr. Rebecca Baumgartner: Thriving Together, How Belonging Promotes Resiliency
When we feel "belongingness," we experience not only connection and acceptance, but we feel that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. The DEIB: It Begins With Us series provides concepts of belonging and othering, focusing on how we can foster more diverse and inclusive spaces for ourselves, our workplaces, and our communities.
At each session, Dr. Rebecca Baumgartner will present on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB), alternating fireside chats with interactive workshops. Although we encourage you to come each session, you can start at any time.
Join us every-other month to...
Begin the internal work of belonging and self-acceptance
Learn and implement inclusive leadership skills at home and at work
Identify the impacts of socialization on stereotypes and bias and ways to mitigate these
MAY 17TH SESSION: THRIVING TOGETHER, HOW BELONGING PROMOTES RESILIENCY
When we feel a sense of belonging, we understand that there is acceptance and support from those around us. We feel safe making mistakes, accepting change, and engaging in healthy conflict. In the workplace, this type of resiliency creates more productive teams and happier employees.
How does this show up in your work? How can you increase a sense of belonging for your team? Join us as we discuss these questions and more!

Rebeka Garcia Cook, MPH, is an epidemiologist and health educator with eighteen years of applied public health experience and consultation. That work clarified for her that helping leaders make sense of data to accomplish a greater vision was her real passion. She pivoted into leadership coaching and is now the owner of Green Boat Coaching and Consulting where she helps leaders create transformational change in the systems that matter to them.
Rebeka specializes in helping female business and organizational leaders create the future they desire. These women care deeply and are passionately involved in their businesses, families, and communities, and desire fullness in all of these areas. They are most at peace when transforming their world, their systems, by using their gifts and resources to impact the things that matter deeply to them. However that passionate heart can also create a frenzy that is exhausting and demanding and robs the joy from work and life. Rebeka helps clarify what is most important and supports them as they align and focus their energy to continue to transform the world and enjoy life while doing it.
Rebeka helps change and transformation happen faster, fuller, and more sustainably by coming alongside them to clarify, listen, contain, propel, and encourage them as they create their desired future. Learn more about Rebeka and the work she does at greenboatcoaching.com.
