About this event

We have talked for some time about measuring Diversity and Equity, two factors of DEI&B that feel quite measurable at least on broad brushes around the demographics of the workforce, where you find whom in the organization structure and how individuals are recognized, rewarded and compensated in comparison to each other and in association to different demographics. BUT, how do you measure Inclusion and how do you measure Belonging? Is it simply by asking, "do you feel included?", "do you feel you belong"? And what if the answers are no? What do you do about that? And how do you measure whether your efforts are truly resulting in the kinds of systemic behavior changes, business norm changes, business symbolism changes, and so on that lead to progress and true inclusion and belonging for all?

Join us as we talk with Laura Wells, founder and CEO of AwakeTeams to discuss the way she is approaching this exact challenge. She and her team are working with F500 companies to pilot theories into proven methods backed by data science and AI to influence and measure progress in Inclusion and Belonging. Laura has spent a career influencing brands and brand building, with the last decade focused on behavioral science across a variety of roles, including now founding a business to measurably improve belonging and inclusion.
