Creating a

Workplace For Everyone

Workplace Inclusivity Means Everyone Feels Valued

Blanchard believes people want to bring their best to work. Everyone deserves an environment where they can truly be themselves. But achieving true diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) isn’t easy. Many people who want to make progress on DEI do not have a plan or the skills to carry it out. Blanchard’s newest offering, Courageous Inclusion, cultivates a mindset that promotes diversity and inclusion and teaches participants a process to become more knowledgeable and active proponents of inclusion in their workplace.

93% of leaders agreed that the Diversity & Inclusion agenda is a top priority, but only 34% believed that it's a strength in their workplace.*

Give your people the motivation and skills they need to create an inclusive, welcoming work environment that encourages people to bring their whole selves to work.


Blanchard understands that awareness building and familiarizing people with DEI terminology isn’t enough to enable lasting change. That’s why we partnered with diversity and inclusion expert Jennifer Brown to create Courageous Inclusion based on the proven developmental continuum in How to Be an Inclusive Leader.

We understand how important it is to provide your people with a way to confidently and safely speak out and raise DEI issues. Blanchard’s Courageous Inclusion program can help.

Courageous Inclusion will teach your people a mindset that promotes diversity and inclusion, then provides a proven process to help them become more knowledgeable and active proponents of inclusion in their workplace.

Your people will understand how to diagnose themselves on the developmental continuum and which actions to take to progress to higher levels of inclusion.

This roadmap approach is what makes Courageous Inclusion uniquely powerful for increasing inclusivity in your culture and creating a workplace where everyone feels they belong.
