Unlocking the Beauty of Belonging

Many of us feel constant pressure to mask and curate who we are — to perform as someone we’re not rather than be who we are. And it hurts us. But we don’t need to live this way.

With Ritu’s bestselling and award-winning book We’ve Got This, she offers readers a roadmap for how to claim belonging so that you can thrive. And it also offers leaders an opportunity to become better allies by practicing empathy and learning about the barriers to belonging — all to unlock belonging for yourself and for others.

Ritu’s passion for championing inclusion is contagious! Her personal experiences with experiencing marginalization heighten her understanding of all the nuances and challenges professionals from equity-seeking communities face in their personal and professional lives. Having worked with her extensively in a professional capacity, including at Netflix, I can tell you that her DEI knowledge runs deep — as does her ability to inspire leaders to commit to change.
