If we are not Consciously Including people, then it is highly likely we are therefore Unconsciously Excluding them.

Conscious inclusion is the act of being aware of and making an effort to include people who are often left out or marginalized. This can be done in a number of ways, such as making sure that everyone has a voice in a discussion, creating opportunities for people of all backgrounds to participate, and being intentional about who is invited to join a group or activity.

It means making a deliberate effort to create a more diverse and inclusive world in which everyone can feel like they belong.  It starts with each one of us making a commitment to be more conscious in our everyday lives – from the way we interact with others, to the media we consume, to the products we buy. When we make conscious inclusion a part of our lives, we help break down barriers that prevent people from fully participating in society. We also send a powerful message that everyone deserves to be respected and valued. If we work together to create a more inclusive world, we can build a better future for everyone.

In this interactive and engaging session, Joanne Lockwood speaks about her own thoughts on promoting a Consciously Inclusive Mindset and you can take steps to ensure people feel a deep sense of inclusion and belonging as colleagues, customers or stakeholders.

Key Points:

  • Defining what conscious inclusion means?
  • Recognising why conscious inclusion is important?
  • Opening up to how we can be more inclusive?
  • Highlighting examples of conscious inclusion in action?
  • Understanding the benefits of conscious inclusion?

Following the presentation, Joanne will be around for an open Q&A where you can challenge her with your thoughts or maybe even ask her for some ideas on how you can tackle your own challenges.
