Inclusion in the time of Trump

What is it about?

How can inclusion practitioners effectively and authentically think about, address, and continue to advance inclusion in the age of Trump? In the paper, I explore the challenges and opportunities created for inclusion by the election and installation of Donald Trump as President. I consider and address questions about the limits of inclusion, alternative perspectives on inclusion, and approaches for sustaining attention to and continuing to foster inclusion. I argue that a nuanced and complex view of inclusion--one that incorporates limits to tolerance of behavior that undermines inclusion along with clear rules of engagement, civility, and respect--may be most useful and productive.

Why is it important?

This is important because inclusion practitioners must continue to expand our perspectives and approaches to addressing diversity and fostering inclusion.
