Many companies focus on diversity, neglect inclusion and completely ignore belonging.
“Simply having people from diverse groups in your company may check off a box, but it isn’t meaningful,” Kim Clark told the crowd at Ragan’s internal communications conference at Facebook.
She quoted author and speaker Verna Myers: “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.” To which Clark added, “Belonging is being part of the congo line.”
Clark’s experience as a documentary filmmaker, mom to a special needs child, and her life as part of the LGBTQ+ community, inform her work and life.
