With diversity, equity, and inclusion topping the list of many corporate leaders seeking to drive a purposeful workplace, many are asking, “So what’s next? How do we make an even greater impact?”

The conversation has moved from having more  varied seats at the table to rebuilding the whole table, ensuring everyone feels welcome, and is part of the conversation. In 2016, Pat Wadors, CTO at ServiceNow and former CHRO of LinkedIn coined the term “belonging”, describing it as the feeling that, as an employee, your authentic self is welcomed and celebrated so you can thrive in the workplace.

In December of 2019, I spoke on the topic of belonging at the Israeli Business Impact on Inclusive Growth conference, organized by Maala, a non-profit corporate membership organization promoting corporate social responsibility in Israel. Founded in 1998, Maala is considered the CSR standards-setting organization in Israel. Presently, the membership organization is comprised of some 110 members, including leading Israeli companies, as well as multinationals with operations in Israel. Maala also annually publishes the ESG Index on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. Maala is the Israel Country Partner in CECP’s Global Exchange, dedicated to uniting country-based, mission-driven corporate societal engagement organizations to advance the corporate sector as a force for good around the world.
