Five Good Ideas to create a sense of community and belonging at your workplace
How do we create a more inclusive community at our workplaces? We have all done the trainings and listened to the TED Talks, and every second line of an organization's website mentions "EDI." Equity, diversity, and inclusion may have become buzzwords in business, NGO, and government sectors, in reality, organizations - including those in the legal sector - have fallen short of reflecting and representing the broader population within which they work. We see that more women and racialized, Black, and Indigenous people are represented in companies, but they still face barriers to advancement and feeling a sense of belonging.

In this Five Good Ideas session, Dr. Tanya (Toni) De Mello, VP Equity and Community Inclusion at Toronto Metropolitan University, will explore the ways in which feeling like you belong, knowing that you will be included, and seeing your work community as "your" community matters. She will provide some advice on how you can achieve this sense of community and belonging at your organization and shed some light on what we may be doing to hinder it.

Note: Live closed captions available for this webinar.
