A Social Belonging Exercise Improves Performance and Health: A Case Study
Diversity is becoming a very important zeitgeist in industry today. In fact, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 88% of employers have diversity recruiting efforts on college campuses and beyond.
Research by Walten and Cohen (2011) outlines an experiment in which a 1-hour intervention impacted students from socially marginalized groups throughout their college career. These students had higher G.P.A.'s, higher self-reported health, and less doctor visits three years later!
Could this type of intervention increase the sense of belonging and develop more engaged and productive team members in your organization? Let's read, reflect, discuss, and learn from each other. Our discussion will be inspired by an article from Science Magazine.
