How to Create Cultures of Belonging in the Workplace
Experiencing belonging in the workplace is essential. To create an organizational culture that is rooted in inclusion, psychological safety, trust, engagement, and innovation, all team members must feel accepted and honored for who they are. And this is what belonging in the workplace is about. To unlock this profound experience, leaders and teams must cultivate authenticity in how they work and lead.

Did You Know?
Authenticity and belonging go hand in hand.
To experience belonging, you must be able to reveal your authentic self. And when you feel safe to be your authentic self, this is when you experience the greatest belonging.
This is why authentic leadership matters. When we lead with an authentic spirit, our team members will be more likely to say that they trust us, enjoy working with us, feel more engaged and satisfied, and have greater feelings of workplace well-being and meaning.
And of course, all of this will cause team members to experience belonging.
All of bci’s belonging and authenticity training can be offered in a webinar or virtual workshop format.

With We’ve Got This, Ritu offers leaders an opportunity to become better allies by practicing empathy and learning about the barriers to belonging, and she reveals how to unlock belonging — for yourself and for others.
