F. DEIB: How Belonging Influences Talent Retention

Organizations can achieve measurable business outcomes, including higher talent retention rates, by building inclusive, diverse cultures. This session will examine how Asbury Communities in Frederick, MD, made Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) a central strategy when setting its goal to decrease staff turnover by 10% over two years. Presenters will describe the tools that made their strategy a success, including a “Belong at Asbury” program, which strives to make Asbury Communities a place of psychological safety, a “Belong Council,” which develops plans and policies to enhance Asbury’s diversity, and “Belonging Moments,” during which team members talk about their lived experience with prejudice. Join this session to review resources that Asbury developed to promote DEIB.
