BUILD BELONGING AT WORK
We are living in a world of great change. With it comes an enormous opportunity to depart from the status quo and build a better world.
Our workplaces are not immune. Those of us leading diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) work know this all too well.
While others in positions of power can no longer ignore the systemic workplace inequities that have historically harmed our most vulnerable staff.
Yes, statements were made condemning racial violence and transphobic legislation. Yes, resources were allocated for mental health services during the Pandemic. Yet, staff want more action, more healing, and more change…faster.
Experienced DEI leaders know that change is a process that moves at the speed of trust, while leaders newer to this work want “quick wins,” to resolve some of the thorniest challenges we face:
- How do we repair from harm at the interpersonal and organizational level?
- How do we build bridges across culture differences?
- What are ways to use our power and privilege to advance our DEI goals?
- How do we confront systems of oppression like white supremacy culture?
- How do we provide community care for our colleagues leading DEI work?
If you find yourself grappling with these questions or experiencing this tension with executive teams just getting started with this work, then join our 2021 Belonging Summit.
There, you will connect with other inclusive leaders, visionaries, & DEI change makers, and learn from some of today’s leading social justice advocates and DEI practitioners ready to help you create healing change at work.
Together, we will grow the #BelongingMovement, and enhance our knowledge, skills, and confidence to imagine and then build belonging at work.
