Inclusive life is a compass. Through our work in Inclusive Life, we are transforming our societies to be more inclusive, equitable and just by how we stand up in our homes and in our vocations. We live inclusive lives through authenticity, awareness and action.
Awareness is built through Inclusive Life’s programs and community, where we explore how to journey towards a more equitable and just society. Through authenticity, we work through our bias, privileges and ignorance.
It’s not enough to believe in inclusion, equity and justice. We must act. Actions—large, small, public and private together—are the full expression of our inclusive lives.
