Your Story Matters. This week we listen to Katie’s Story.

It’s hard to find a place that you feel comfortable in. It can take many years of searching to find a community that makes us feel loved and supported. After all, we all want to feel that we belong, especially at work. Today's guest, Katie Rasoul, shares her personal story about this very topic. 

This week on The Workplace Headcase my obsession is #Belonging. In this episode I talk to  keynote speaker, leadership coach, fellow podcaster, and founder of Team Awesome, Katie Rasoul, about why belonging is now an important workplace focus. And how belonging has naturally evolved into the third piece of the Diversity and Inclusion triangle.

If you are a person committed to learning more, advocating for, and implementing workplace cultures that are Diverse, Inclusive and foster Belonging -- this episode is for you!
