Let’s face it…keeping New Year’s resolutions is tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. If you have made a personal resolution to do more in your workplace to build an inclusive organization, and you aren’t certain where to start, look no further! The RPC Team has developed the 30-Day Belonging Challenge specifically to help you take everyday actions to cultivate a workplace culture of belonging. When you enroll in the Challenge, you’ll spend about 5 minutes each day (tops!) incorporating some of the concepts from Rhodes Perry’s new book, Belonging At Work. So what are you waiting for? Enroll today, encourage a friend or a colleague to join you, and together let’s grow the #BelongingMovement!Read More
On World Kindness Day, Rhodes Perry moderated a panel discussion with some of today’s most inspiring diversity, equity, and inclusion thought leaders. Together, they discussed how workplace leaders could cultivate workplace cultures of belonging after the midterm elections. If you were unable to participate in the November 13 discussion, you now have the opportunity to watch a recording of the panel and learn how political changes impact workplace culture. You will also gain insights on how to navigate politics and lead on workplace belonging.Read More

Celebrations and September go hand-in-hand. This year is especially worthy of celebrating. Why?

The stories, case studies, and research featured in the text offer everyday actions you can take, no matter your role, to build a more inclusive organization.
