Belonging By Design

"Belonging By Design" February 22 2023

Belonging brings out the best in everyone. Whether you are a parent, teacher, community organizer, executive or leader of any sort, your group is unlikely to thrive if the individuals don’t feel welcomed, inclusive, and valued for who they are. Acknowledging that belonging is a feeling is a powerful way to start this work.

We will discuss rituals that bring us together, spaces that keep us calm, roles that create a sense of responsibility, systems that make us feel respected, communications that create understanding and more. You will learn how to actively build belonging (inclusive communities where everybody has room to collaborate and flourish) wherever you are.

Let’s explore the feeling of belonging, the moments during which belonging occurs, and the process of shaping your context so belonging can emerge.

Facilitated by Katherine Kemp, Founder K Tills Coach for Growth.

ONEplace will email participants the zoom link the day before the training. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions.
