Denise Soler Cox
For Denise Soler Cox, co-producing and co-directing the award-winning film, “Being Eñye” revealed a foundational truth: Belonging is a universal human need.
Worldwide audience reaction to “Being Eñye” reinforced that the desire to belong, feel included, and valued, is not limited to a group or minority. It is a desire in the hearts of everyone. What began as her personal project, became a crusade to positively impact individuals, companies, and communities.
Her research-driven program emphasizes why Belonging matters to us personally and collectively. She provides a blueprint that improves lives and relationships.
Additionally, for companies, it enhances retention and the bottom line. As it turns out, Belonging not only fulfills a basic human desire, it’s also good for business!
