InclusionINC's 18th Anniversary: Taking a Look Back
Last month we celebrated our 18th anniversary--18 years and counting! As CEO and founder of InclusionINC I'm proud to say that I'm continuing the relentless drumbeat of continuing to drive inclusion as a business strategy. Inclusion means a better bottom line.
The world has changed since we started in 2001; we’re pioneers in the inclusion space and have experienced a series of milestones in the past 18 years. Although we started beating the drum for inclusion back in 2001 there’s still much work to do to bring inclusion to workplaces around the world. We’re doing it!
There have been a number of milestones along our journey to help corporate America lead inclusively.
In 1992, I was the lead consultant for Denny’s after its $54M discrimination lawsuit. Since then we have been pioneers in linking inclusion to business success.
InclusionINC was born in 2001, founded on the notion that is inclusion—not just diversity—that drives better business success. In the 2000s, InclusionINC developed a cutting-edge Learning Over Time™ approach.
In 2011 we globally validated inclusion behaviors in 14 countries.
We developed the InclusionSCORECARD in 2012.
Also in 2012, I released my first book, Inclusion, The New Competitive Business Advantage, advancing my thought leadership on inclusion as a business imperative.
In 2012 we validated inclusive leader competencies; our 360 assessment took inclusion work to the executive level.
My second book, Becoming an Inclusive Leader: how to Navigate the 21st Century Global Workforce was published in 2014.
In 2017, I delivered a TEDx talk at the University of Chicago on the shift to inclusion.
My third book, Inclusion: STILL the Competitive Business Advantage was published in 2019.
Today, after 18 years of going strong we’re still fighting the good fight to help organizations achieve inclusion to boost their bottom lines. Inclusion is a business imperative! What are you doing to achieve it?
Our New Book Has Been Released!
In Inclusion: STILL the Competitive Business Advantage, we continue our contributions to thought leadership on the importance of inclusion in an environment that has been roiled with new discussion—and new dissent—amid rapidly changing demographics, continually emerging technology and a global economy that is continually shifting to favor newly emerging market powerhouses. We're very gratified by the positive reviews already pouring in.
