What do inclusive leaders do? What specific actions do they take to demonstrate a commitment to inclusion?

Inclusive leadership expert Melissa Majors is an innovator and optimizer of inclusion, leadership, and education strategies. In The 7 Habits of Inclusive Leaders, she reveals how great leaders enjoy superior team performance and drive much higher profitability by incorporating inclusive practices.

These behaviors fall into seven categories:
-Business Process
-Leading Self and Others

Majors delivers clarity on how our brains are to blame for why leaders unintentionally exclude others. Through storytelling, research, and personal experiences, she offers a common-sense yet compelling and actionable approach to inclusion. She argues that people shouldn’t feel guilty or defensive when having inclusion-related conversations; the brain is to blame, not people. This discussion is for all leaders; leaders of self, people, initiatives, and organizations.


Learner Outcomes:

  • Articulate the case for integrity-based leadership as it relates to mitigating common challenges women face in the workplace.
  • Describe specific leadership tactics that can be used to overcome these issues.
  • Gain access to resources (infographics and pre-defined social posts) that can be used to continue the conversation with your network.

Melissa Majors is a crowd-pleasing speaker who masters brain-friendly talks that engage her audiences and spark not just inspiration but action as well.
