Conscious Capitalism is dedicated to elevating humanity through business. One aspect of elevating humanity is to create a greater feeling of belonging for more people. It’s not only good for humanity. It’s also good for business. Businesses that create a culture of belonging benefit from a 50% reduction in turnover, a 56% increase in job performance, and millions of dollars in savings each year. So, as a business leader, how do you create a culture of belonging in your company? In this session, H3Diversity founder, Kim Manns, will talk with Co-Founder and CEO of Verb, Suzi Sosa, about the business of belonging - what it is, how conscious leadership creates belonging, and why it’s needed not just to elevate humanity but also to strengthen a business.
Kim is a passionate leader with a talent for supporting diverse stakeholders coming together to solve challenges of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Her career in diversity, equity, and inclusion began over 15 years ago, in brand management at Procter and Gamble, where she led multicultural marketing for major company brands. Following her time at Procter and Gamble, she served the Mayor of Baltimore as Deputy Director of Policy and Communications, and joined the staff of the Commit Partnership in Dallas, a local non-profit focused on addressing educational inequities. In each of these roles, she focused on a systems approach to decrease educational and economic disparities.
Kim served as an executive coach for the Social Change for Leadership Program at Stagen Leadership Academy, a 52-week leadership program designed to amplify and elevate the voices of powerful women leaders. As an executive coach, Kim specializes in issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Kim’s approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion (head, heart, and hands) stems from her passion and expertise in personal leadership development, deep work in supporting equitable policy through her service in the non-profit and public sectors, and talent for translating challenges into sustainable strategies.
