Organizations of all types are interested in innovation. Yet few realize that advancing a culture of inclusion can have a direct impact on the ability to innovate. Cutting-edge research from Catalyst shows that the more inclusive we are, the more innovative we can be. Inclusive leaders create psychological safety on their teams by demonstrating behaviors such as empowerment, accountability, courage and humility. This sense of safety is important for a learning environment and a critical driver of innovation.
