Inclusive Leadership


Inclusive leaders get the best out of all their people, helping their organisations to succeed in today's diverse, global environment.  By building strong relationships and diverse teams, inclusive leaders are able to increase productivity, performance and engagement with staff and customers.
This Five Point Framework  will help you plan and navigate how to build inclusion as a core capability amongst all of  your managers and leaders.  Behind each icon on the graphic sits practical materials and case studies to support you on your journey to put inclusion at the heart of great leadership in your organisation.

A Five-Point Framework for change

The Five-Point Framework sets out the approach required to develop and embed inclusive leadership over a two to three year timeframe.  It is the result of an 18 month action research programme undertaken with five organisations: BAE Systems, the British Army, Citi, Fujitsu, and HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

The Five Point Framework acknowledges that each organisation has unique challenges, environments and cultures, and is designed to be flexible to those needs. It does not need to be used in a linear way, though we recommend organisations begin with Vision and move sequentially through to Evaluate.
