Inclusion is about building safe and productive environments


Inclusive leaders are champions for environments that allow team members to perform their duties free of harassment, discrimination, exclusion and disrespectful behaviors such as gossip, inappropriate jokes and rejection.

  1. Practice verbal and non-verbal nuances that show you are open to considering other’s ideas. Team members are less likely to share their ideas if they feel they will be shut down.
  2. When conducting team meetings, be mindful of the difference between accepting, respecting and celebrating diversity of thought.
  3. Focus on achieving department goals that emphasize teamwork.
