Increasing awareness of what creates an authentic sense of belonging is an important step in establishing a community where everyone can experience a sense of belonging. As guides and models for the youth we serve, understanding how to create belonging for the youth, families and each other helps Allendale excel. Mr. Reinert will share his knowledge and experience with how diversity, equity and inclusion creates a sense of belonging, provide examples, and engage us through the Creating Belonging™ model. Join the Lunch and Learn to develop an understanding of how belonging is created at the intersection of authenticity and acceptance. Together we’ll deepen self-awareness and develop a plan to accelerate belonging for all at Allendale.
