“Authenticity is the most important thing when it comes to building inclusive cultures,” said Yvette Steele, CompTIA community manager. “If you personally do not see the value in diversity and inclusion, it will come across in daily interactions and decisions. Inclusive cultures are built when senior leadership models inclusive behaviors, ensures buy-in from middle management which empowers the team for change. In other words, inclusive cultures are built by everyone in the entire organization.”
