            A focus on belonging may be the key to unlock our work on diversity, equity and inclusion. But can you design belonging? Dr. Susie Wise says, yes and no. Belonging is a feeling. Everyone experiences it differently. What you can design are all kinds of things that help the feeling to emerge: spaces that offer invitations to be your whole self, rituals that bring us together, roles that develop authentic responsibility, and systems that are respectful. Susie will share from her new book Design for Belonging: How to Build Inclusion and Collaboration in Your Communities. With concrete frameworks to feel it, see it, shape it, she offers accessible ways to focus on reducing othering and building belonging and to explore the intersection of inclusion and innovation.
