Diversity & Inclusion Speaker - Heather R Younger

By Heather Younger | October 07, 2020


What do truly inclusive workplace cultures look like?

They look like places where leaders sit with their people and empathize with them. Where they embrace their people for who they are and what they stand for. They sit with them and ask them how they're doing inside and outside of work.

I know what it feels like not to be included or to feel like I don't belong, from a painful experience in my past. Being shunned from my own family because of what I look like, because of my race. But I use that pain from the past and transform it into a positive catalyst to help leaders understand what they need to do to create inclusive workplaces, where employees truly feel like they belong.

Now, I know right now is a tough time. Many of us don't know all the right words to say. But if we lead first with empathy and compassion, we will all be just fine. Come with me as we explore what it looks like to have a truly inclusive workplace where our employees can finally feel like they belong.
