Personal Resilience: Joy Through Inclusion & Authenticity

The Chamber will host a leadership luncheon in collaboration with the Hancock County Cultural Humility & Health Equity Delegation titled “Personal Resilience: Joy Through Inclusion & Authenticity” with Maria Arcocha White, Founder & COE of Inclusity, on Friday, May 14th from 11:30 am – 1 pm at the Hancock Hotel. Webinar viewing will also be available.

Key takeaways from this presentation will be:

  • Resilience requires that you face the fear that is within you. You can’t do this alone.
  • Self-Care and Selfishness are not synonyms! As women, we are often made to feel guilty if we focus on ourselves — even if 90% of the time we focus on others! That must change.
  • Intentional Inclusion changes lives. It will change yours. It will change every person’s life who encounters you. And it will change the world.
  • Joy comes from within. You can’t buy it, do it, wear it, drive it, or live in it. It comes from the ability to be your authentic self and to connect with others as your authentic self.

Registration can be done online at www.FindlayHancockChamber.com/WomensLeadership. In-person attendance fee covers light lunch and valet services

This program is sponsored by Cooper Tire & Rubber Company, Eastman & Smith, Hancock Federal Credit Union, and Spectrum Eye Care.


About Maria Arcocha White:

Born in Cuba, Maria immigrated to the U.S. with her family as a four-year old. Her formative experiences as an immigrant is partly what drew her to work in the diversity and inclusion (D&I) field. Throughout her career of 35 years, Maria has developed inclusion and diversity training and successfully trained thousands of executives, managers, and employees across a wide range of industries. Maria stood out in the field because of her compassionate approach, powerful ability to connect people, and success at building inclusive cultures.

In 2013, she launched Inclusity to pursue an empathetic, inclusion-focused approach to D&I work, believing that when we “lead with inclusion, diversity will follow.” Prior to Inclusity, Maria was executive vice president of Pope & Associates, a leading D&I training and consulting firm, and vice president of human resources for R. R. Donnelley Logistics. She began her career at Procter and Gamble Company, where she became the company’s first Hispanic sales and marketing manager. Maria’s compassion also extends to the community.

She currently serves on the board of the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, is a Rotary member, and previously served in an advisory capacity on the U.S. Senate Task Force on Hispanic Affairs. Maria has an M.A. in counseling from Xavier University and a B.A. in communications from the University of Toledo. She holds a certification in PROSCI change management. She works out of the central Inclusity office in Perrysburg, Ohio.
