Inclusion 101™ Optimizing Our Diversity Potential

SOLLAH EXCLUSIVE!

Everyone wants to feel they’ve been heard and taken seriously about what’s important to them, right? That’s one way to describe inclusion. Inclusion is the feeling that we’re part of a team or organization. That we’re respected. Inclusion is a tool… a strategy or an approach. It exists when we create a culture that makes a space for everybody to be present and to participate and contribute – feeling valued.

Diversity 201™ - She’s Young… And a Girl!

Sometimes it’s not about one type of bias but more about the ways in which biases can overlap. Equity and inclusion are about encouraging and listening to ALL voices.

Each person is unique and it’s important that we don't let stereotypes keep us from getting to know the people that we work with. We need to respect and include others by looking beyond appearances… to see the person inside.

When we think about other people, we need to be aware of how bias may come into play. This is particularly true when the same behavior is seen as positive or negative depending on the gender of the other person. As we think about how to put awareness into action, we must watch the words we use to describe others and strive to be fair and equitable in our descriptions.

We all know the dangers that come from making assumptions based on one aspect of a person - such as their name. People want to be seen as whole people and our name is just one part of who we are. This kind of bias can be very subtle and we may not even realize that it is being done. So, as we think about putting this into action, let’s support all of employees in the appropriate pronunciation of their names and to watching any biases that start from someone’s name.

It never has been. Points of identity, like gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnic background or age… all matter to people. To say that you don’t see them is denying the existence of something that has a significant impact on our relationships.
