Have you ever felt lonely at work? Have you ever struggled to belong in the workplace? Have your team members ever shared they’re feeling disconnected? Have you ever wondered what is happening in our minds and bodies that gives rise to these experiences? Given how difficult the last few years have been, it’s not surprising that study after study is finding that people are experiencing more loneliness and disconnection than ever before. The impact is profound, including in the workplace. And this is especially true for people who come from equity-seeking communities. Why do we feel lonely at work? What strikes at our ability to belong? What happens in our minds and bodies? And most importantly, how can we address this?
