“Belonging is more powerful than any strategy” Cultivating a sense of Belonging in the Workplace
While Diversity and Inclusion strategies are necessary and important, you'll never fully reach the potential of a D&I strategy unless people feel like they Belong and they can bring their true authentic self to work. Belonging is that sense of inclusion where people feel "Not only is this where I fit but I'm accepted for who I am". Belonging has the power to liberate ideas and creativity. Presenter Kamella Emmanuel explains how to drive the conversation on DIBs, listen to employees, create a strategy for your organization by integrating diversity, inclusion, and belonging into recruiting, training, performance evaluations, and promotions.
