Share the power of feeling included

Most of us want to feel respected, valued and welcomed at home, in our community and at work. But how much effort do we each put into making others feel those things? Each of us can choose to help make a positive difference. Here are some ways to do just that.

How to Help Make a Positive Difference

Get to Know Yourself

One of the best ways we can help people feel included is to be self-aware. When we begin to understand who we are and why we are this way or that way, it can help us identify how we may or may not be helping create an environment where others feel safe and welcome.

Understand the Impact of Your Words

Choose respect and be an ally and an advocate. Hold yourself and others accountable for creating a welcoming environment.

Seek New Perspectives

Something might seem completely foreign to you until you try it. Take advantage of opportunities to broaden your own perspectives and gain experiences.
