(Additional teammates available to join upon request!)
The Place of New Beginnings - Why Belonging is a Basic Human Right
Who will benefit from this speech? This Keynote is ideal for industry leaders, community builders, and innovative thinkers. You will be challenged to look within to determine your own understanding of belonging and how you value that in your own life and in the lives of those around you. Kathryn will discuss the importance of belonging both in our world and in our workplaces, both in general themes and then specifically in regards to humans with disabilities.
What are the primary takeaways? The concept of belonging is regularly held open for a culturally approved group of people only, leaving many on the margins or outside. This can be seen in social settings, relational, educational, and vocational. While all of these areas are important, and do build on one another, the emphasis of this keynote is primarily focused on the workplace and the benefit that inclusive workspaces brings to our communities, cities, and world.
What do we promise? We can’t promise it will be comfortable, but we do promise it to be transformational. For yourself. Your work. Our communities and cities. And ultimately our world.

"Kathryn facilitated a virtual meeting for our North America population in which she asked each of us to get curious, be vulnerable and explore our own biases in a safe and constructive way. Kathryn created space for active engagement, questions, and conversation which took a topic that could trigger emotions of shame or fear and transformed it into an arena for exploration, learning, and awareness building. Our population left the conversation energized and informed. Thank you, Kathryn!"
