Discovering Our Vital Roles in Our Diverse Communities

All community members have the potential to become Inclusive Leaders. The more skilled we each become at embracing our own and others’ diverse identities the more we are each able to contribute to building sustainable communities, “…We must find ways to harmonize diversity with unity, the exercise of freedom with the common good, short-term objectives with long-term goals. Every individual, family, organization, and community has a vital role to play.” (Earth Charter)

Gerry Masuda has been a friend and supporter of Inclusive Leadership since 2006, when he participated in a week of experiential Inclusive Leadership Education. This experience ten years ago was part of his on-going search for his meaningful and vital leadership roles in his community. Continue reading

Discover Your Inclusive Leadership Potential!

Submitted by Linda Hill

In Inclusive Leadership we view differences as gifts. One of my differences that I often offer to the Inclusive Leadership Co-operative is my love of researching. My big research question for this past year has been: “What are the most effective ways for the Inclusive Leadership Co-operative to go about adapting our renowned experiential education workshops and weekend retreats into online courses?” 

Nine Participatory Action Researchers sharing leadership!

It has been such a joy-filled and satisfying experience to team up with a couple of dozen Inclusive Leaders for a year of Participatory Action Research into how to offer Inclusive Leadership Online. Here is a big shout out of thanks to everyone involved in the Inclusive Leadership Online Committee, the IL Practice Group, and the recent video interviews.

One of the outcomes of all this research is that our introductory  online course for students, professionals, volunteers and leaders everywhere will make it’s debut this fall.

Here is a short video clip of me introducing “Discover Your Inclusive Leadership Potential.” 

Did you see Mohammad Binaz’s interview a couple of weeks back? We will be posting more interviews in August when I get back from holidays!

 

I invite you to watch this video, and then go to our Inclusive Leadership for our Global Village Online Course Platform to read the description and curriculum outline for this course and for the Inclusive Leadership Practice Group. 

Registration for both Inclusive Leadership Online offerings will open in September.

We hope you will consider signing up and we hope you will encourage your colleagues, co-workers, volunteers, students, and friends in other communities to take these courses too. Everyone who gets involved in the first “Discover Your Inclusive Leadership Potential” will be both a student AND a Participatory Action Researcher!

With your participation and feedback, we will gradually develop a series of interactive, online Inclusive Leadership courses enhanced by live video gatherings. We hope that Inclusive Leadership Online will quickly become a lively, vibrant mutual mentoring hub for authentic Inclusive Leaders who are connecting across time, space and diversity with other caring and courageous Inclusive Leaders around the world.

Education for Sustainable Development Workshop at Africa Clean Up Conference 2017

In his workhops in Ghana, Nigeria and other parts of the world – Joshua Amponsem teaches the importance of diversity and inclusion for sustaining our beautiful planet. We will be posting an interview with Joshua soon! In the meantime, this post about his workshop is fascinating reading.

Joshua Amponsem

The workshop which was held on the 7th of July, 2017 started with a brief Q&A on the importance of diversity and inclusion. In about 15 minutes the group had given a lot of reasons why diversity is important but only a few people mentioned inclusion. This was good and this formed an integral part of the workshop. It was my objective that by the end of the session, participants will not only appreciate diversity but also understand the need for inclusion.

I projected a slide which talked about diversity and I used my obsession with nature (particularly the ocean) to explain the reason why diversity is not enough until inclusion is established. I said, “When I watch any documentary about the ocean, I get excited and I think you all do – why? Because the ocean gives a lot of beauty – it’s colorful with a lot of…
