CCL Webinar: Leading With Inclusion and Belonging in the Workplace

On Demand

Duration: 46 minutes

About the Webinar

This is session 3 in our series, Towards (Better) Leadership. Be sure to explore our other sessions as well:

Building a sense of inclusion and belonging in the workplace is an essential part of creating cultures of equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace. Belonging — the belief that we are connected, supported, and respected — is a basic human need that, when provided, can pave the way for greater performance, innovation, satisfaction, persistence through challenges, and reduced employee turnover.

Research confirms that inclusion and belonging in the workplace — and an uncertainty about them — are strongly affected by organizations and their leaders. Sense of belonging has the power to influence everything from job satisfaction and self-esteem to performance and wellbeing.

Join us as our experts discuss how organizations can foster true belonging by building a strong foundation of trust, connection, and freedom from uncertainty in this session from our virtual event.

What You’ll Learn

  • How to create a sense of inclusion and belonging in the workplace
  • The impact of uncertainty about belonging
  • How a sense of belonging relates to organizational equity, diversity, and inclusion
