Towards a Culture of Belonging

Dr. Nikole Hollins-Sims’ presentation, “Centering Dignity, Collaboration, and Belonging in Systems Change,” focuses on the importance of fostering a sense of belonging, defined as the experience of appreciation, validation, acceptance, and fair treatment within an environment.

This sense of belonging is crucial in preventing distractions and worries about being stereotyped, allowing individuals to fully express their multidimensional personhood in various settings, including the workplace and educational institutions.
