Fostering a Workplace Culture of Inclusion and Belonging

A sense of belonging in the workplace can increase job performance, reduce turnover, and drive resilient teams. But what does it mean to feel like we belong at work, and how can we help create that experience in our organizations?

Hire Immigrants Ottawa is pleased to be offering a new workshop series for employers that invites participants to explore what it means to achieve and contribute to a sense of belonging in the workplace.

This three-part workshop series progressively builds participants’ knowledge and skills about inclusive practices that build a culture of belonging. Participants who complete all three workshops will receive a certificate.

Module 1: Building a Culture of Belonging

We all long to belong; but how do we build this experience at work? In this introductory module, we explore what it means to feel a sense of belonging in our workplaces, what it looks like, why it matters, and the foundational components for building it.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define the concepts of diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging;
  • Articulate the benefits of fostering a workplace culture of inclusion and belonging;
  • Identify the key components for building a workplace culture of belonging.

These virtual workshops will be delivered via the Zoom platform.

We are pleased to offer these workshops for free, but advance registration is required.
