Pretty comprehensive while complete course about inclusive leadership. Good point: lot of research done with excellent papers provided that covers most of the important aspect. Still lacking some part when dealing with inclusive leadership in non-english speaking countries: switching to English to welcome Foregin nationals at the expense of smooth communication for dominant group!! But not sure that litterature is available on this topic... Anyway, good job, thanks for the opportunity!! PS: I loved the joke about enjoying meeting so much... there should be more throughout the course...!

This course was a great review of some information but also introduce new ways of thinking and new ideas, learnings, and tips on Inclusive Leadership. Some of the links for articles were challenging with the ads, cookies, and wanting to sign up for additional content.

This course has really been an eye opener as I overlooked certain traits of a leader in my team. After completing this course 'I realize everyone can be a leader and leadership comes with learning regardless of how high we go'.

Overall a very good course. Easy to follow content and actionable concepts. Unfortunately a lot of the optional reading requires subscriptions to Forbes or Harvard Business Review.
