Claudia teaches Non-Violent Communication, Yoga and Inclusive Leadership
In these times of turbulence, inclusion is a door we can open to support each other and live better lives.
In fact, I think Inclusive Leadership skills are all like doors that will enhance all my dreams and projects and the way I want to live on Earth.
I am slowing down to open the doors to myself; to be more receptive and be able to see the wisdom that life is giving us if we give it time.
The outcomes are long term relationships, sustainability, trust, communication and love.

The art of inclusion applies with all humans no matter gender, practices, age, race, creed or religion. Many people arrive at Inclusive Leadership with our own experiences of dissonance with what we have been taught or come to believe and our own determination to live inclusion in every aspect of our lives in peaceful manners with Love.

Here is an invitation to consider for yourself and share with champions of diversity and inclusion you know.
Did you know that those of us who are deeply concerned about social isolation, discrimination, habitat loss, and climate change are part of a world-wide movement? Did you know our movement is probably 3 billion people strong and growing?

Facilitating Inclusive Leadership means making it easy for the children, youth and adults in our lives to connect with the magnificence of social diversity and biodiversity safely, respectfully, equally and peacefully. With the help of funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage, we have been able to follow 65 volunteers who have been facilitating Inclusive Leadership since April 2019.

Who are these champions of diversity and inclusion who are transforming our communities by guiding children, youth and adults to embrace diversity? What are Inclusive Leaders doing to make it easy for anyone to live, learn and lead more inclusively in our diverse communities? What vital roles are Inclusive Leaders playing in shifting our troubled world from this time of great peril to an age of great promise?

Pema Rigzin, and Claudia Sanchez.
The Strengthening Bridges project is generously funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism.
Our goal is to build community capacity by preparing new generations of Inclusive Leadership facilitators.
The project Education Committee (Janice, Linda, Lindsay, Harriet, and Terri) invited Inclusive Leaders to gather online on November 27, 2019 for two hours of Appreciative Inquiry into the ILC Strengthening Bridges project. We are so grateful to everyone who came to our virtual meeting room. The 14 of us who met together live and work in diverse parts of the world with half of us in Canada. The make-up of this online gathering beautifully captured how our Inclusive Leadership community is growing out from our roots on Vancouver Island BC to other provinces in Canada and to Argentina, Colombia, England, Nigeria, Uganda, Zimbabwe and many other countries. We showed up with open hearts and minds to embrace the new and somewhat unusual experience of learning on-the-job to be Participatory Action Researchers and Consultants. Continue reading
