In early April, I had the privilege of attending the 2019 Othering & Belonging Conference in Oakland, CA, a three-day event dedicated to exploring this complex question:
“How do we make belonging real?”
The program was powerful. Enlightening, despairing, inspiring, engaging and deeply informative.
Evolve HR recruitment and retention efforts so that all people will feel like they are included in the existing workplace cultures and systems.
Less common, but more meaningful and lasting:
Evolve company-wide culture and systems, ensuring diverse voices are at the design table, so that all people experience the feeling of belonging in a workplace everyone helped to create.
What are your thoughts on inclusion versus belonging?
