Belonging – or not? Come share and hear stories of how our multiple social identities impact whether or not we feel we belong (and how others treat us.) We will explore identities such as gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, race, disability, age.
How can the spaces that we create as leaders can be more inclusive and welcoming?
We will conclude with a wrap-up about how we can incorporate insights into our daily lives at work and elsewhere.
Free event and open to all.
Wheelchair accessible. Certified service dogs allowed. Assistive listening devices available. Gender-neutral bathrooms are available.
