How to Promote Inclusivity in All You Do

Diversity, equity and inclusion are important to making the world a better place, as well as promoting peace and harmony around the globe. In order to do more good in the world, it’s vital to understand the perspectives of those who differ from us. 

What makes us unique is also a beautiful thing! It’s time to embrace differences in order to work together and achieve a common goal of doing more good. Check out these ways to help promote inclusivity in all that you do. 

 

Embrace Differences

How can you embrace differences? The first step is to stop seeing differences as a bad thing. Just because somebody is different from you doesn’t necessarily mean the way they do things is wrong, or the way you do things is right. It’s just that—different!

Conversation is the easiest way to overcome any obstacles. It’s okay if you don’t share the same culture, viewpoints or lifestyle as others. The important part is learning as much as you can from those who are different from you to help promote an environment of inclusivity. Instead of scoffing at a difference or writing the person off because they have differences, take the time to get to know the person. Truly open your heart and mind to their opinions, and you’ll find that they’ll more than often do the same. 

 

Educate Yourself

Part of promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in all that you do is ensuring you’re educated on matters at hand. When you don’t know about issues facing others who have different backgrounds, cultures, jobs or circumstances, it’s impossible to help. Research organizations in your community that might be able to open your eyes to certain causes or issues you aren’t familiar with. 

You could also take a class on a subject you’ve been curious about. Since we’re living in a digital world, information is vast and often free online. In addition, take the time to listen to those around you. The more you know, the easier it is to put your best foot forward into the world. Be curious about differences and try to find common ground.

 

Question the Status Quo and Have Tough Conversations

Just because something has always been done a certain way doesn’t mean it has to continue to be done the same way. Conversations will not always be comfortable. However, sometimes the hardest questions produce the best outcomes. 

Try to bring diverse viewpoints into important conversations. If you aren’t the expert on the subject, bring in somebody who is and listen to their viewpoints. Although these conversations may be difficult, they’re important to understanding the full picture for the causes we support and the work that we do. 

 

Above all else, remember that we’re all human. Promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in all that we do helps us develop a more informed and inclusive picture for different causes and issues at hand. Remember to lead with compassion for others, and you’re sure to put your best self out into the world, ready to be the change you want to see.
