The burden of feeling misunderstood, and in some cases unappreciated, prevents people from bringing their whole self to work. This has a direct effect on engagement, productivity, innovation, and self-esteem. In this workshop, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) will revitalize their feeling of belonging. We will explore the mindset and actions needed to change one’s own situation at work and turn it into a more positive experience to be part of organizational change. We will go through a journey of empowerment and inspiration while creating a pathway to discovery. This is resilience in action. Participants will: ● Feel inspired to bring their whole authentic self to work and be confident about the value they bring to their organization. ● Identify actions that can help them transform painful experiences into powerful discoveries. ● Get in touch with the power within to change situations or start important conversations that render the workplace experience more fulfilling and complete. ● Define actionable items at the personal, team, and organizational level.
