Hello!This is your 30-Second Inclusion Training Vision & Strategy Brought to you by the Office of Faith Based andCommunity Initiatives (OFBCI). Click here to begin
Why should inclusion be incorporated into the vision and strategy of an organization? To prevent damaging legal action and publicity. It is a key to organizational success. To fulfill the requirements for grant funding. It is not important to incorporate inclusion.
Woops! Try again!While we certainly don’t want you to face legal action, this is not the point of inclusion. Inclusion is not about fulfilling a requirement or quota but focusing on incorporating all people into all situations – work, education, social life, etc. Please Try again!
Awwww…sorry, try again!Nice try, but inclusion is about making people feel welcome, not about meeting a requirement in order to get funded. There is a right answer. Please try again!
Really?! Inclusion is important! All people have the opportunity to serve. It’s not just about people with disabilities – it also involves those of different faiths, ethnicities, genders, and other areas of civil rights.

Excellent!Incorporating inclusion into the strategy and vision of yourorganization involves embedding into every aspect of what you do. When inclusion is a part of the vision, strategy, rationale, goals, policies, principles, behaviors, and competencies of an organization, it becomes a key value and a means to growth and success.
