3.4 Put it into Practice

An inclusive governance culture involves the active inclusion of everyone who is on the board. It celebrates difference and recognizes that issues of power and privilege affect people’s ability to participate. To create an inclusive culture, barriers to participation must be identified and strategies developed to ensure more equitable participation.

An inclusive culture needs to extend beyond a basic or token representation of a particular race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or dis/ability. It informs the core values of the board and influences all of its policies and practices.
