Power of Inclusion

”Inclusion is not a matter of political correctness. It is the key to growth.”
~ Jesse Jackson

There has been a lot of discussion around inclusion, yet here we are.


After the August 28,1963 speech of Martin Luther King Jr. during the match in Washington for jobs and freedom… I have a dream...who would have thought that we’ll still be here?

 

It took double tragic incidents in 2020 to bring the need for inclusivity to the forefront again. Covid-19 gave the world a reset button, and the death of George Floyd on May 25th, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, may his soul Rest in Peace, brought inclusion back to the forefront.
