Setting the Tone at the Top

Helping organizations instill psychological safety can lead them to realize innovation more quickly, unlock the benefits that intentional focus on diversity and inclusion can result in, and also help them to adapt more easily to change—all of which have grown in importance during 
(and since) the COVID-19 crisis. Join in for an interactive discussion that offers to define what psychological safety is and what elements of diversity, equity and inclusion might be reinforced for leaders who intentional seek to foster such an environment in their organizations. 

Charles Belo, Founder & CEO

Hailed as a "soft skills jedi", Mr. Belo has more than three decades of experience with the federal government, the last decade of that time has been exclusively as a diversity and inclusion practitioner. Known for his very personable and disarming style and demeanor, he has been recognized as a skilled inclusion consultant who makes nearly any topic easy to discuss, regardless of who's in the room. This U.S. Air Force veteran is also a career professional in national security analysis, mentoring and coaching, and professional networking.

True to and proud of his native North Carolina roots, Mr. Belo never meets a stranger. A proven dynamic, energetic and engaging speaker and facilitator, Mr. Belo is regularly sought after by organizational leaders and workforce teams to provide a variety of diversity and inclusion related workshops, facilitate brainstorming sessions and "power-hour" discussions on such topics as unconscious bias, fostering inclusion on teams or in the workplace, approaching cultural competency, open-mindedness and psychological safety, and others.

Mr. Belo holds a degree in Government and Politics from University of Maryland University College. ​
