Building Inclusion: An Evidence-Based Model of Inclusive Leadership
Diversity Council Australia
Diversity Council Australia’s Inclusive Leadership Model proposes that there are five capabilities necessary for a person to be an effective inclusive leader. Inclusive leadership refers to capabilities such as mindsets, knowledge, skills, and behaviours that leaders possess and that make their organizations inclusive.
- Building an Identity-Awareness Mindset: Reflect on your own identity and think about what advantages or disadvantages you might experience as a result.
- Building a Relational Mindset: Reflect on your ability to communicate effectively across different social and workplace identities and practice, etc.
- Building an Open and Curious Mindset: Ensure that across your whole organization, work activities, meeting times, and work-related social activities are scheduled so participation is maximized, etc.
- Building a Flexible and Agile Mindset: Assess whether your organization has mainstreamed flexible working (e.g. make flexible work standard business practice), etc.
- Building a Growth-focused Mindset: Investigate the extent to which team members from all backgrounds/experience/job levels/business areas/functions can contribute to decision making, etc.
