“The people who make the biggest difference are the ones who do the little things consistently”

As our lives become increasingly driven by technology, the ability to use emotion to relate across differences and foster a human workplace has become more of a critical advantage than ever. The concept of ‘Inclusion’ has its roots in Special Education and Disability Rights, largely focusing on systemic changes. In this session, we will explore the topic at the individual level, using perspectives from Organizational Psychology.

We will discuss what the experience of inclusion means to each of us, its link to psychological safety, and how we can through micro-acts of positivity bring out the best in each other, professionally and personally.

A Psychology enthusiast, I find that positive psychology offers many practical benefits in life, and believe that learning and personal growth happen best through Inclusion.
