PATH 044Art is a founding member of the Inclusive Leadership Co-operative. He considers his involvement in Inclusive Leadership since 2007 to be foundational in the way he works as a counsellor.

“Diversity, as it is experienced within Inclusive Leadership, is a living, breathing part of each and every person. Just as there is diversity in every person, there is leadership in every person, humanity in every person, and these are the common bonds that link us together to become stronger and brighter in caring for people and the planet.”
