Championing Inclusion

Championing Inclusion

By Cordelia Osewa-Ediae , October 2016

Research has shown that workplaces have a significant role to play in building a fairer society because employment facilitates social cohesion. Several studies have also reiterated the benefits of having a diverse workforce. While this research acknowledges the importance of diversity in the workplace, it goes a step further to posit that workplace inclusion is even more critical in ensuring that all employees feel valued – no matter their difference. This is because nurturing inclusive workplaces that value diversity, not only makes good business sense but facilitates social integration and social mobility.

Cordelia Osewa-Ediae's research was borne out of a desire to explore how leaders and organisations could nurture inclusive organisations that value diversity. By highlighting lessons learnt from leaders who have nurtured inclusive environments, the aim is that other leaders and managers could learn from good practice.
