Driving Inclusion and Belonging at Work: a Conversation with Bain’s Chief Diversity Officer
There’s a lot of buzz these days around the concepts of Inclusion and Belonging. We know they are important drivers of employee engagement and retention. We all want to experience inclusion and belonging and to help create that same experience for colleagues and team members around us. But how to make that happen can sometimes feel mysterious.
I had the opportunity to speak with Bain & Company’s Julie Coffman and Nishma Gosrani. Julie is Bain’s Chief Diversity Officer and the leader of their Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion practice. Nishma is a partner in Bain’s Financial Services practice whose work focuses on human capital transformation and the future of work and culture.
Both Julie and Nishma bring a wealth of data-backed research and their own personal experience to the table in this rich conversation around what truly drives the experience of Inclusion and Belonging at work and what actions any of us can take as leaders or just citizens in order to amplify those experiences for ourselves and those around us.
