Embracing Inclusion is the EI (Emotional Intelligence) of Leadership for 2021. It consists of three principles.
How do we bring these principles together?
1. We must learn about others. We must learn who they are and what are their experiences.
2. We must practice appreciation for who they are. We do not need them to assimilate and or ask they erase their identity. We must practice respect for their otherness and create a space that is large enough to welcome the existence of our differences. We must honor human equality of all and protect the basic alienable rights of all. We practice coexistence, collaboration, and community.
3. We must share what we learn and what we practice. Our lessons are for our individual growth but for our common growth as well.
“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
