To shape a better world, embracing inclusion should not be a choice but a vital commitment. Regardless of our gender identity, our roles at home or in workplaces, we all have a part to play in fostering a culture of inclusivity. 

While commendable strides have been made, the journey is ongoing and demands a collective effort. 

Acknowledging the diverse needs and obstacles faced by marginalised and underrepresented groups is a crucial and compassionate step in the right direction. As a proud Mununjali woman from Yugambeh and Bundjalung Country, I have experienced these challenges first hand.

By recognising these nuances, we strengthen our commitment to a world where inclusion can become a firm reality.

Tenielle Rolfe is Inclusion Program Manager at ANZ.
