Inclusive leadership couldn't be more important than it is today. Recent research reveals that inclusive leaders create inclusive work environments that produce higher performance, increase employee engagement, fuel innovation and creativity, increase retention, and positively impacts the client's experience. The demographics of the 21st century are dramatically different than 20 years ago as the workforce has become more diverse, global, multi-cultural, multi-generational, hyper-connected, and are working more virtually. As a result, the ability to lead across differences, create a culture of belonging, inclusion, and high performance will be a key lever for attracting, engaging, and retaining top talent, new customers, clients, members, and donors.
