Cultivating workplace belonging

Indy Batth, BPE’87, MA’98

Despite some social progress in workplaces, many Indigenous, Black, and People of Color (IBPOC) still feel guarded and withheld from their leadership aspirations. “I don’t feel I belong or have a voice here” is a statement often felt but rarely expressed out loud. Speaking up when psychological safety isn’t in place can have a severe impact on communication, career progression, mental health, and more for IBPOC.

This webinar, open to everyone, will center the voices and experiences of IBPOC as they navigate systemic oppression in the workplace. Attendees will acquire a four-step framework and strategies to address inequitable practices to help create belonging for IBPOC.

Participants will discover how to:

  • Build awareness of how IBPOC experience racial oppression in the workplace
  • Analyze why racial oppression is happening
  • Identify steps to disrupt oppressive practices
