Thanks for joining the Belonging at Work Summit! I created this event because I envision a world where everyone on the job enjoys authentic connections with their colleagues, feels seen for who they are, gets the support they need to do their best work, and feels pride and purpose on the job - in other words, they feel an emotional outcome of belonging, and I want to help leaders like you build it at work.
I love helping leaders, visionaries, and change agents build more psychological safety, more trust, and more belonging at work for those of us who are most likely to endure the sting of social exclusion - most likely to feel invisible, discouraged, disconnected, and invisible on the job. Tragically, even in the powerful #BelongingMovement we are building together, I encounter leaders on the verge of giving up on their DEI commitments.
That's why I spent the past two decades working in-and-with many organizations researching, testing, and changing promising practices that lead to more employees feeling a sense of belonging at work. What I have learned along the way is now enshrined in my best-selling books, Belonging at Work and Imagine Belonging.
This Summit brings together what I've discovered during my 20-year journey in the diversity, equity and inclusion field and in social justice movements. The best part, all that I pour into the Summit is complemented with powerful ideas, insights, and strategies offered by fellow DEI and social justice thought leaders from around the country.
I’m excited to join you on this enormous learning journey. Together let's grow our #BelongingMovement!
