DEI EXPERT PANEL
Fireside Chat // Creating a culture of belonging
We heard from 12,000 employees around the world as part of our annual Employee Experience Trends report and one thing is clear: people want to feel a sense of belonging at work. In our study, this desire to belong overtook career growth and trust in leadership as the most important driver of employee engagement. 2021 is the year of employee belonging. But how can leaders act on this important finding?
Join Airbnb’s global head of diversity and belonging for a fireside chat with Qualtrics’s own head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) for a discussion on how organizations can foster a culture of belonging in 2021 and beyond.
What you'll learn from this webinar:
- Practical guidance from Airbnb about how they create a sense of belonging at the team and organizational level
- Tactics for how to empower managers to create a work environment that fosters belonging
- Best practices to measure and track progress for DEI initiatives
