The research is clear—inclusive environments are performance enhancers. They are characterized by higher productivity, less turnover, and more resilient cultures. Organizations with employees who feel like they belong outperform the competition by as much as 202%. They are committed and passionate about the work they do, resulting in higher performance and lower turnover rates. Leaders who know how to cultivate positive emotion tap into an endless well of psychological capital – hope, optimism, confidence, resilience, and belief – that has the power to keep people and teams innovating, creating value, and more successful even in tough times.

This session will help professionals at all levels understand the varying levels of inclusion, and demonstrate how strategic (DEI) learning can build truly inclusive workplaces.
