The world has been galvanized by events that have surfaced the experiences and impact of systemic racism and exclusion, of primarily Black Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC). By adopting an Inclusionary Mindset© we can take steps toward healing, narrowing the divide that confronts us. Let us LEAD together, building a road map to stronger more engaged teams and communities of authentic inclusion and belonging.
What are the leadership qualities needed to overcome the challenges that face us today, focusing on systemic racism and exclusion?
