Diversity without inclusion is just an illusion. Inclusive organizations embrace the diversity of their teams and encourage staffers to bring their best selves to work, and celebrate the wide variety of cultural differences, personal attributes, and ethnic backgrounds of those who are different from them. A senior leader who joins or serves as a sponsor of an employee affinity group with which they have a little or no familiarity can serve as an inspiring practitioner of inclusive leadership.
