Inclusive Workplace Resources
Inclusive, collaborative workplaces require leaders to create the environment in which each person feels safe and inspired to share their contributions. A more inclusive environment requires not just a policy change, but a change in our daily behavior.
A leader’s responsibility is to go first, to model the behavior we want to see in others. Listening, empathizing, collaborating and building trust are foundational elements that harness the power of diversity to create truly inclusive cultures. Chapman & Co. partnered with Fred Falker to develop a fundamentally different approach that goes beyond unconscious and implicit bias training.
Use the resources below to lead a more inclusive team.
Diversity & Inclusion Survey
How inclusive is your organization currently? Having an overview of your culture’s current state is the first step to implementing changes beyond policies.
These examples will equip you to have inclusive conversations with peers, team members, customers and clients.
Include: Rethink Diversity in the Workplace
Include focuses on the distance between people and the behaviors that drive connection regardless of the demographic make-up of your team, department, or organization.

Sameness, Sadness, and A Way Forward
In the places we work, learn, play, heal and grow, we shape and are shaped by others. Organizations, groups and teams where these experiences and interactions take place have the power and potential to be the most powerful force of change in our societies today.
Watch the first five minutes of our most recent virtual Include course, where Fred Falker, a noted Diversity and Inclusion expert, encourages us to think about the impact that behaviors within our organizations can have in our communities.
From Difference to Distance
Hear diversity and inclusion consultant, Fred Falker, introduce the Distance Paradigm – a new way of thinking about Diversity and Inclusion, differences, and a powerful and practical new approach to connecting with others. Fred challenges us to see that there is nothing dividing us, one from another. All that lies between us is space and opportunity.
