At bci, we infuse all of our work with the latest DEI, authenticity, belonging, psychological safety, leadership, empowerment, and mindfulness research and data. As thought leaders in this space, we have many resources available to download that will help your organization become more inclusive.
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 We’ve Got This, Ritu 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.
