Inclusivity


Inclusivity is the policy of including people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized. These people are consequently unable to attend meetings, lectures and handicapped people need special consideration. Others have been excluded on grounds of racialism or substance abuse. A person who has been incarcerated and has served his/her sentence, a person with a mental illness, are usually excluded from community activities.

When promoting programs to insure that nobody is left out, it’s advisable to use an inclusive statement on the flier such as: Everybody welcome. It’s advisable to let us know if you have any special requirements. Please include contact information.

Organizers should consider the acoustics of the venue and how this might affect people with hearing impairments, they should avoid using large places that might have unpleasant acoustics, particularly for senior citizens.

Ice-breaker activities at the beginning of each meeting will gauge the capabilities and special needs of the group. Many people want to attend some kind of group activity  so as a society, let’s take their needs into consideration.
