Inclusion focuses less on what makes people different, and more on creating an environment that encourages people to bring, to contribute, and be appreciated for all aspects of their diversity. Practically speaking, an effective approach is not just to identify employees’ differences, but to focus on creating an environment that is inclusive and encouraging of all people.
