RSVP for Event Series: Building the Future of Belonging at Work

Welcome new subscribers! Please feel free to introduce yourself on this thread with your name, location, and your hope for building the future of belonging.

We are kicking off the first session in a 10 session series this evening at 5:30 pm PT. These sessions invite participants to step into a place of possibility and imagine alternative visions and stories for the future of belonging at work in the next decade that can inform our individual and collective experiences and break out of the prevailing narratives and norms. We hope to inspire new perspectives, actions, and collaborations by bringing together practitioners, thinkers and innovators committed to an alternative future for belonging at work. This project is a space for learning from lived experience, historical context and future dreams to systematically examine and envision belonging at work.

Many of the narratives and stories reflecting the future of work reinforce a past and current reality of command and control hierarchies, extraction and exploitation of human potential and natural resources, and systemic oppression and exclusion that we don’t want to repeat. Yet current official futures of the future of work perpetuate these models, practices and concepts, informing and shaping our futures. We need to articulate the futures we want and need to create. What are the new narratives and stories needed to transform our understanding and practice of belonging at work over the next decade? What forces could contribute to a new vision for belonging at work? What forces could impede new approaches for thinking and organizing?
