What Burning Man Taught Me About Belonging

Belonging is when others take the time to know you, take care of you and include you for all the things you are. This word also means when you feel welcome, included and a part of the team. We spend over half our lives in our workplaces. Feeling like you belong in your company is a large part of getting up out of bed and knowing the contributions you make will be heard and respected. Join Heather Newman, Microsoft MVP and CMO of Content Panda to hear how Burning Man and the SharePoint Community taught her about belonging and steps you can take in your role to be a leader in helping others feel like they belong. Building community starts with how we treat each other. The talk will also include an overview of how Microsoft is thinking about Global Diversity and Inclusion and how to leverage Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Planner to build inclusion programs.
