Why We Need to Focus on Social Equality and Inclusivity

“Inclusivity means not just ‘we’re allowed to be there,’ but we are valued. I’ve always said: smart teams will do amazing things, but truly diverse teams will do impossible things.” – Claudia Brind-Woody

We believe that there are 5 key pillars we should focus on to guide us towards creating a Regenerative Culture: Social Equality and Inclusivity is our 3rd Pillar.

Imagine a just and equal world

Where there is no extreme poverty or hunger.

Where good quality education is available to everyone.

Where all individuals are given access to the resources and opportunities they need to have the capacity to thrive and enrich their community.

This is the World we imagine.

And it’s the World we’re committed to building. Together!

Equality is a basic human right that must be protected. Everyone should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of gender, race, age, disability, or sexual orientation.

We cannot achieve sustainable development and realise our goal of an inclusive, thriving World if individuals are excluded from opportunities, services and the chance of a better life.

We are all interconnected and interdependent

Problems and challenges – whether it’s climate change, poverty, pandemics (like COVID-19) – are not confined to one community, or even one country. We’re a global community and we need every individual, in every community, in every country to focus on creating social equality and inclusivity.

We need to focus on inclusion.

By identifying policies and procedures in countries and organisations that create experiences of exclusion, and removing them.

By highlighting areas where countries and organisations must take bolder action to create a long-lasting inclusive culture and to promote inclusive behavior.

The more of us that feel included and are focused on creating an inclusive, regenerative World, the quicker we can create it!
