We support organisations to understand what inhibits and what enables those who work for them to feel included which we define as feeling respected, valued, safe, trusted and having a sense of belonging to their team and organisation and thus being able to be their best selves and do their best work.
The guiding vision of TCfIL is to contribute to the creation of a more inclusive society. Our mission is to help organisations to create more inclusive environments in which their people function at capacity and are fully engaged in supporting their organisations to achieve its mission.
Waiting To Exhale: At the Centre for Inclusive Leadership we have spent time considering what we should say in response to recent the events following the death of George Floyd; we didn’t want to just push out a corporate soundbite because nobody on the team believes in them. We are passionate about inclusion; we are outraged about injustice and inequity. We don’t just want to say what’s expected. We are the Centre for Inclusive Leadership, so it is incumbent upon us to look in the same mirror that we hold up to our clients. The particular mirror we hold up is called H.E.A.R.S, whilst we created the approach, we are not above reproach. On the contrary as its authors, we are held to a higher standard. We too must look in the H.E.A.R.S mirror all day, every day and ask ourselves are we modelling what it means to: Hear and interrupt our own bias; treat everyone Equally well; be Authentic and foster authenticity in others; Respect ourselves and deepen our respect for others and Seek to actively manage the inclusion of others. Although we are SME’s in this area, we are also growing in our understanding of what being inclusive really means. Should you experience us in any other way – please protest and hold us to account. We must do better; we must be better.
As a business we understand that tackling exclusion and discrimination requires ongoing dialogue to which we will continue to contribute, but for now click here to read an open letter from one of our co-founders Paul Anderson-Walsh, who is the former CEO of The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust.
