Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space. Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too. Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does. Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that. Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

Inclusive Growth Mindset

What is Your Inclusive Reality?

Exclusion occurs daily to children and adults. Whether it’s isolation from schools or work because of disability, race, language, religion, gender, and poverty. The right to be included and supported is fundamental, an indispensable educational practice regardless of differences – together we are resilient as this is the cornerstone of inclusive education. 

We work with schools to examine their current inclusive reality, the larger world outside their window, and the myth of Inclusive education. We walk together to explore the power and value differentiation, training, support, flexibility, and resources play to nurtures, encourages, and responds to the inclusive educational needs of students, faculty, and stakeholders - exploring novel strategies of understanding the importance of inclusive education & what it means to have an elevated inclusive growth mindset.

Leaders Who Inspire

Great leaders find creative avenues to unite and engage stakeholders. A can-do spirit to create a workforce that’s ready for current and future challenges. They “promote the success of all by facilitating the development, articulation, implementation, and stewardship of a vision of learning that is shared and supported by the school mission, vision, and values.”  These leaders toil to make a sustained difference in the lives of those they touch.
