Inclusive Leadership behaviors build and support strong cultures, and create a sense of belonging by “respecting the worth and dignity of each person”. Project teams are in the perfect position to not only embrace inclusion of diverse team members and organizations, but to also utilize this diversity to achieve successful project delivery and help the organization realize the benefits defined in a project implementation. This presentation will discuss inclusion and how to educate project managers and leaders to help the PMO lead by example to help the organization embrace the challenges of inclusive leadership.
