Inclusion involves more than simply encouraging people; it requires making sure that adequate policies and practices are in effect in a community or organisation.
It means understanding the relationship between the way people function and how they participate in society and making sure everybody has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities and desires.
In a time where diversity is often talked about especially in social media, inclusion seems to be left out and forgotten.
In this podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with one incredible guest- Carly Findlay.
