Incorporate inclusion principles across all of the business

So you’ve completed step 1: made and documented your plan for workplace inclusion. Now it’s time to incorporate inclusion principles across all of the business.

A united approach is vital. If the business attempts inclusion in one department but not others, you can expect unrest.
