Session Overview

The journey of belonging is deeply personal. Ms. Taylor leads an insightful TEDx Talk on how we define belonging and own our feelings of a sense of belonging. She leads us on a thought-provoking conversation about how we work together to create conditions in the workplace that develop the best environment for our teams to foster belonging and thrive.
