7 Small Ways to Be a More Inclusive Colleague is good article in The Harvard Business Review that would be worthwhile reading for all of us white educators.

It’s worth reading the entire article – which is very short – but here’s a compressed list (I would especially highlight the first one, and I think the sixth one is a bit weird):

1. Highlight others’ contributions.

2. Use your pronouns.

3. Use gender-inclusive language.

4. Assess your vocabulary.

5. Celebrate with your colleagues.

6. Get creative about team bonding.

7. Be curious.
