What is an inclusive leader? 

Inclusive leaders take action to create, change and innovate while balancing everybody’s views and needs. They have the courage to take conscious steps to break down barriers for all people in society.  

They actively seek difference, invite and welcome everyone’s individual contribution, and take steps to seek out full engagement with the processes of decision-making and shaping reality.

Sign our pledge today
