Creating Inclusive Work and Life Environments
This program provides insightful perspectives and practical tools on creating inclusive connections to build healthy boundaries and mutual respect without forcing compliance, attempting to change minds of others, or engaging in verbal combat.
2020 will take a prominent place in our history as humanity has been tested at a global scale and to the deepest level at its core. A deadly pandemic, divisive politics, deep-rooted social injustice, devasting economic hardship, and traumatizing isolation have severed our connections and destroyed our sense of belonging. The mental, emotional, and social health of humanity have been severely traumatized. As we cautiously approach rebuilding our new norms in 2021, we must be mindful of how we reconnect with the familiar while connecting with the new and different. One of the biggest challenges we must tackle first is dismantling the “Us vs Them” mindset, which keeps us divided politically, culturally, socially, and personally. Our differences do not have to divide us. When our differences are tolerated, we collectively produce sub-par outcomes. When our differences are accepted, we are merely meeting the status quo. However, when our differences are genuinely appreciated, we thrive. We can build an inclusive culture when we openly and intentionally appreciate our differences. Dismantling the “Us vs Them” mindset will create inclusive working and living environments, empowering each individual to thrive physically, socially, emotionally, and mentally.
RIHEL offers this workshop on occasion. We will alert our community and update this page when the next delivery is planned.

As part of the RIHEL team since its inception, Judy continues to learn from participants, alumni and colleagues. Her most recent foci in RIHEL programs has been on leading the collaboration thread and supporting the emotional intelligence and coaching threads in ALTP, as well as co-leading workshops in Team Intelligence, Leading Team’s Virtually and The Emotionally Effective Leader.

Judy hopes to further her cooking, writing and fly-fishing skills that will combine with new travel adventures, all with family and friends.
