What is the view of your organization’smanagement and leadership on inclusion? Leaders accept some responsibility toward inclusion issues with regard to equal opportunity laws. Leaders consistently see differences as potential problems, rather than opportunities for enrichment. Senior leaders routinely discuss the importance of inclusion as a core organizational strategy, and provide consistent, visible leadership. Leaders view managing inclusion as one of their responsibilities.
Woops! Try again!Equal opportunity laws are important. However, there is more to inclusion than simply following a law or regulation. Inclusion should be integrated into every aspect of a leader’s organizational management. Please Try again!
Awwww…sorry, try again! Inclusion is not a problem.It is often simply being aware of inclusive practices that makes all the difference. Leaders should understand that inclusion is about treating people fairly rather than the same (equally) and strive to accommodate differences; tolerance is understood as both not giving and not taking offence on the part of self and others. There is a right answer. Please try again!
Not Quite Inclusion is more than simply being responsible. It’s involves owning the values of inclusion, as well as, promoting them to others. Placing inclusion as aresponsibility relegates it to another task to be checked off of a list rather than an ongoing process and mindset. Try again!
Excellent!Senior leaders are seen as change agents and role models and inspire others to take individual responsibility and become role models themselves. Leaders and board members understand that the work of inclusion is systemic and designed tostrengthen the organization’s culture. They are owners, not just sponsors, of the organization’s inclusion work.
