It’s highly likely your company has D&I as one of its core values, and so do you. If you’d ask all your employees if they feel they belong, do you know what the answer would be? Belonging is increasingly the most important part of DEIB and in this session your facilitators; one a successful trainer and member of the LGBTQ+ community, one BIPOC PhD candidate and one a global VP with a physical disability, will give you practical tools based on real life case studies, that show how small actions increase a sense of belonging and in return increase productivity and reduce attrition.
