Workplace Inclusion Charter

Inclusive practices in a diverse workplace are more than ethical – they present significant business advantages and opportunities for organizations that are willing to embrace them:
  • Increased productivity

  • Increased creativity

  • Increased profits

  • Improved employee engagement

  • Reduced employee turnover

  • Improved company reputation

  • Wider range of skills

  • Improved cultural insights

The Workplace Inclusion Charter is designed for businesses and organizations of all sizes and at all stages of advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. By signing the Charter Declaration, organizations are taking the first step toward becoming more inclusive. All signatories commit to develop and implement an action plan for their organizations that will improve inclusion for a particular population over the course of one year.

Charter members will have access to the following supports:
  • An assessment process that helps identify key opportunities and areas for improvement
  • An action plan, developed with organizational priorities in mind and with tangible benchmarks that the organization can work towards
  • Intercultural intelligence training that is customized to each workplace
  • Public recognition
