Many of the workplace practices, activities and training which have been developed to increase inclusion for specific types of diversity can also apply to other types of diversity. For example, unconscious bias training can have positive impacts across Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, cultural, age, LGBTIQ+, gender and disability diversity. Core inclusion skills include understanding yourself, not making assumptions, curiosity and understanding the legislative environment.
- The ‘Why?’ of inclusion
