Diversity and Inclusion- How to Build a Culture of Belonging 

Inclusive leadership that supports diversity starts with surrounding yourself with people willing to deliver uncomfortable feedback. Building a culture of belonging, educating yourself about others' experiences and challenges, and staying committed for the long haul is essential.

Heather uses her intimate knowledge to inspire leaders to flex their empathy muscles and master the art of active listening to ensure every employee feels valued, respected, and supported.

Leaders who actively listen to team members, establish a sense of belonging and inclusion by honoring their employees’ diverse experiences and perspectives. They encourage and support honest conversations in authentic ways.
