The sense of belonging at work is one that few in today's organizations truly feel, but for which we need to strive towards. This keynote presentation will address how to build workplaces that make people feel like they truly belong. During the session we will address the pitfalls of traditional diversity, equity, and inclusion work, and how to actually create organizations that value the dignity of all, work from a place of justice, and cultivate cultures of belonging.

Twenty-percent of all humans are or will be disabled. With aging populations, climate change, COVID, growing awareness of neurodiversity and other major changes that number may grow. Disability justice informs us however that there is beauty in disability, and we are only as disabled as the society that surrounds us. During this keynote, Jade will look at how we create accessible futures, and find meaning and beauty in the disabled present.
