Work in progress
Real progress on diversity & inclusion doesn’t happen without real work. We’ve got a long way to go. But together, we can make lasting change.
Inclusion is a choice
Good intentions alone don’t make real progress. We need to learn and relearn, have uncomfortable conversations, and examine our conscious and unconscious biases.
This is about honesty and accountability. It’s about all of us, people of all backgrounds, identities, and cultures choosing to do the work.
It’s time for us all to put in the work

Include was an opportunity to accelerate our D&I journey in our company and to engage our ecosystem. We brought together some of the top minds in academia, law, social justice, and human behavior. Attendees gained insights about driving systemic and individual change, and we shared stories from our global communities.
