Ruth Rathblott will share her CURE model for expanding diversity by focusing on inclusion and belonging; she will also share her own story of being born with a limb difference, hiding it for 25 years, and her path to unhiding.
Attendees will have the opportunity to explore their own differences through personal reflection and engagement activities.
The C.U.R.E. model engages attendees on 4 dimensions:
- Connection through courage and commitment
- Understanding by uncovering those parts of ourselves that are different and creating safe places for conversation about difference
- Representation by making sure all voices are recognized and have a seat at the table
- Empathy to create a healthy workplace
