Challenged my own description of inclusion
"This course challenged my own description of inclusion and how best to create a comfortable, safe environment for teams. It was really valuable for me to look at the ways discrimination and harassment can be perceived and avoided to create a respectful inclusive workplace where everyone feels safe and business productivity can be maximized."
