You don't have to be an extrovert to be good at networking, and you don't have to be fake. In this course, former presidential campaign spokeswoman and self-professed introvert Dorie Clark shows you networking strategies that you can personalize to play to your strengths and connect with people you actually like. She helps you identify the most important people in your network and prioritize who is most critical to your success. She also helps you choose which networking events are a valuable use of your time, and shows how you can host one yourself. Then, you'll learn how to start conversations that build real connections, and use social media to network authentically. Last, she helps put all the elements together into a plan you can use to become a better networker.

Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging
Courses Select
Diversity is having a culture that values uniqueness: people of different backgrounds, cultures, genders, and races. Inclusion means inviting diverse groups to take part in company life. If you're tuned into conversations about HR, you've probably heard these terms before. But there's a third critical piece: belonging. It's belonging that makes each individual feel accepted for who they are. Explore the diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DIB) approach, and discover how to activate it in your organization. Join HR luminary Pat Wadors as she explains how to drive the conversation on DIBs, hire and retain diverse talent, listen to employees, and integrate DIBs into your employee life cycle. Managers and executives should tune in for special tips on embedding DIBs in the employee experience.
