Belonging means you feel seen for your unique contributions, connected to your coworkers, and supported in your daily life and career development. Offering a culture of belonging is an increasing priority for companies, and a lot of the responsibility for building it falls to new and middle managers.
In this episode, we'll explore the key elements of creating a sense of belonging in your team: how to work against bias, the downsides of being an insider, and how to be an ally.
