Join us for another edition of the IFMA Foundation's new series, Rework: The Sustainable Development Chronicles. In today's episode, Jessica Bantom, author of Designing for Identity: How to Design Authentically for a Diverse World, speaks with host Dave Karpook about how Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging can inform work and the workplace. Many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including goal 10 – Reduced Inequality; goal 5 – Gender Equality; and goal 16 – Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, come into play in a discussion that ranges from the white-collar workplace to decent work in all areas of the globe.

In this episode, we will go over...

  • The importance of inclusive conversations to making diverse populations feel a sense of belonging
  • The importance of moving beyond formal policies to authentic, inclusive behavior
  • How workplace professionals can promote equitable and inclusive behavior in all types of work around the globe
