Belonging & Inclusion

Screen Shot 2021-10-05 at 4.53.56 PM.png

Fostering inclusion and belonging often means creating experiences that reinforce a sense of connection, community and shared destiny. 

 

Basic strategies to foster belonging and inclusion: 

  • Visibility and representation

  • Authentically bringing traditionally excluded individuals and/or groups into processes, activities, and decision/policy making in a way that shares power.

  • Listen harder when you suspect you disagree. Bringing curiosity, not judgment to interactions.

  • Challenge white supremacy and other oppressive structures by building communities where everyone belongs.

  • Culture is unifying: Music, food, sports, art, literature and secular traditions can bring people together. In societies that pivot towards coexistence, they can give people something to share.
