Speaker: Stacey Gordon

Presentation Topic: Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging: What’s the Difference and Why Does it Matter to Business?

Synopsis: It has always been a challenging time to be female or part of an underrepresented ethnic minority group in tech or engineering, but now more than ever, our society seems to be polarized. The impact of that is detrimental to the business, but also, to the career of the individual dealing with this lack of belonging. There is a social scientific need to belong and our workplaces are failing us. In this lively, interactive session, we’ll discuss how we can open lines of communication, build trust and create a workplace culture of collaboration.
