  • Why Inclusion as a Principal?

    Why Inclusion as a Principal?

    Inclusive projects acknowledge that we are all, always somewhere along the spectrum from beginning to mastery, and our position changes radically from moment to moment. The principal of inclusion acknowledges our 'mobile' state, and it puts a revolving burden on those who may be further along at time X to help pull those around them up -- so that the same might happen for them the next time they are down. Operating from a principal of inclusion embodies the power of groups whose members are equal in commitment even if at time Y they are not all equal in skill, understanding, competence or clarity. Inclusion also enables a powerful opportunity for contributing silence, and beginning to recognize that, in a large group, we don't have to play many notes to build a beautiful melody together.
