Our Purpose

The Inclusive Institute is a not-for-profit charity association on a mission to create a world where everyone is included.

Social Research

Creating an inclusive world is no small task and we make sure we have a clear picture of the experiences of all people through our social research activities.

Industry Research

We undertake indepth research into specific industries in partnership with various industry bodies and associations.

The Bigger Picture

The Inclusive Institute is part of, and contributing to, a bigger picture as part of The Inclusive Organization group of companies.

That’s why it’s time to take a different approach

Is what a women earns for every dollar a man makes
Muslims report having experienced religious discrimination in the United States
Of Transgender people have attempted suicide in their lifetime
More job applications have to be sent by minority ethnic groups to get a positive response

Our Purpose

The Inclusive Institute is a not-for-profit charity association on a mission to create a world where everyone is included. We are doing this by undertaking empirical social and industry research, identifying the issues of exclusion, the benefits of inclusion, and contributing to social change for people from traditionally under represented and under employed groups.

We believe everyone should be included

We believe every organization is responsible for including everyone

We believe research, data, and evidence progresses inclusion

We believe that, together, we can create a world where everyone is included

You shouldn’t really need an ROI to justify Inclusion. But did you know?

More likely to have industry-leading profitability with an ethnically/culturally diverse executive team
More revenue is generated by teams where men and women are equal (representation, pay, and voice)
Of consumers live with a disability and are a $500bn consumer market largely untapped
More likely to have higher shareholder returns when your company leads the way on disability inclusion

Social Research

Creating an inclusive world is no small task and we want to make sure we have a clear picture of the experiences of people just like you, so we can tackle change in real and meaningful ways for everyone.

Our #inclusiveworld survey consists of a collection of statements to discover your lived experiences as a consumer, in the workplace, in education and learning, as a citizen in the community, and through the media. It also includes questions to gather information regarding aspects of your identity and your immediate family.

Your responses to this survey will help build a picture of the inclusion and exclusion experiences of people from all over the world. The collated survey results will be used by The Inclusive Foundation to inform and influence organisations, governments, medical and health providers, educational institutions, and the media.

Maintaining the anonymity and confidentiality of your individual responses to this survey is really important to us; we will not collect any information that can be used to identify you. Data collected from this survey will not be reported where there is any possibility of individuals being identified.

If making more money from inclusion doesn’t convince you, maybe fear will?

Companies in the bottom quartile for both gender and ethnic/cultural diversity are 29% less likely to achieve above-average profitability

Industry Research

Our social research certainly contributes to our understanding of the experience of individuals in various industries. We also, however, undertake more indepth research into specific industries in partnership with various industry bodies and associations. If you would like to partner with us to undertake research in your industry please let us know. 

We are currently working on a significant STEMM industry research project in collaboration with SmartSat CRC.

The SmartSat CRC is a consortium of universities and other research organisations, partnered with industry that has been funded by the Australian Government to develop know-how and technologies in advanced telecommunications and IoT connectivity, intelligent satellite systems and Earth observation next generation data services. The purpose of SmartSat CRC is to develop intellectual property and a specialist industry expertise that will spawn new businesses, create export economic value and generate new high-tech jobs for all Australians.

Contact us if you would like to be kept up to date with research findings and publications.

Of consumers have taken their business elsewhere because they didn't feel included or represented by a company

The Bigger Picture

The Inclusive Institute is part of, and funded by, The Inclusive Organization. The Inclusive Organization is creating a world where everyone is included by transforming every organization we; work for, buy from, are treated by, educated by, and governed by.

Business-As-Usual Inclusion is The Inclusive Organization’s proprietary methodology and is the solution to transforming your organization into a place where diversity thrives so your business does too. The methodology has been developed based on:

  • Enterprize and systems thinking
  • Behavioral science
  • Organizational change management and transformation principles
  • Label neutrality
  • Empirical research and evidence

No doubt you know there is a lot more to inclusion than setting gender representation targets and scheduling events aligned to international days of celebration. We understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to inclusion. We can help you create a practical and fit-for-purpose inclusion strategy that meets the objectives and needs of your organization. And, just as important, we will help you ensure the right people are on-board and accountable. The business case for inclusion will never be stronger.

  • Get the right people in the room
  • Make informed decisions
  • Ensure you have practical and tangible action that will result in inclusive outcomes

Our strategic approach to improve inclusion for all people is underpinned by robust research and effective data collection. With this approach you can enact positive change, but also demonstrate progress, measure outcomes, and ensure your efforts are being applied where they make the most impact.

We utilize a range of different research methods, including (but not limited to):

  • Online surveys
  • Focus groups
  • Functional and operational reviews
  • Environment and behavioural observation
  • Financial and human capital data collection
  • A balanced scorecard of lead and lag inclusion indicators
  • In-depth analysis (baselining, longitudinal, and benchmarking)

We have used the term ‘training’ in the heading just in case that’s what you’ve come looking for, but really what we offer is something quite different. We develop inclusion capability relevant to every person’s role in your organization, and make people accountable for creating inclusive ways of working that include the needs of everyone. Our programs and workshops develop the capability of: 

  • Operational and functional business leaders
  • People leaders and managers
  • HR and D&I specialists
  • D&I committees, councils, and employee reference groups
  • Employees
  • Undertake inclusive gap analysis for action planning
  • Make inclusive decisions
