Belonging is at the intersection of diversity, equity, and inclusion. What does it mean to create a workplace culture of belonging? This training will introduce the AMAZEworks framework for creating the conditions for belonging. We will establish a brave space for participants to enter into conversations that invite self-reflection and meaningful dialogue, foster empathy and understanding across differences, and lay a foundation for deeper, long-term diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging work.
