Get your weekly dose of 

"Bite Sized Belonging!"

In 10 minutes or less, your host, award-winning documentary filmmaker, keynote speaker and author, Denise Soler Cox, will take you on a journey to understanding how to create Belonging.



As I work with organizations throughout the country, what I consistently hear is a desire to build a diverse culture where employees and customers feel like they belong. 

Let’s create the Magic of Belonging™ together:  


Without understanding the difference between the two, we miss the connection points that make it possible to build cultures of true belonging. that we can say we want employees to be their full selves, and yet we overlook that most organizational cultures in the U.S. are based in a self-reliant structure, while most diverse employees and customers were raised in a collective culture environment.

The Challenge...

Experience a conversation on DEI that unites your organization, without causing defensiveness or resistance.

Gain a new understanding of cultural dynamics in a diverse workforce and how to create a more collective work environment.

Understand how to create BELONGING within your organization. You will see eyes open, hearts shift, and tangible change throughout your organization.

Today, I work with organizations that want to reach a diverse customer base and build more diverse, equitable, and inclusive cultures. 

...working at the intersection of these two cultural worlds. As a first-generation Latina, I was raised in a collective-focused family while finding success in a self-reliant work environment.

"Denise has an important story to tell. I love the she tells it with heart and authenticity."


Kris Campbell

For a live in-person and high-energy conference, I needed a speaker to not only match this energy but bring the relevant content to the table and Denise Soler Cox did just that and more! She was highly recommended to me and what I experienced first-hand, I see why! She met the goal and then some!

The smiles, nods and tears of audience members during Denise's speaking engagement was an early indication of what the final outcome would be and that was complete satisfaction! Many of the audience members not only felt motivated by Denise but their hearts and minds were fully engaged. - ANNA GARCIA

I'm collective dominant, so I love hearing about your kids, your family, what you care about first before we talk business. It doesn't mean collective-dominant peeps don't know how to get down-to-business, it means we build trust through relationship.
