October Attribute is INCLUSIVENESS.

I will work to build a community where everyone feels included, empowered, and valued for his or her unique contributions.

•INCLUSIVENESS is when you make everyone feel welcome and appreciated.

•Take some time to learn about the similarities and differences in my community
• Encourage success in others by supporting their strengths
•Recognize and celebrate differences
•Include others equitably
•Manage cultural change openly toward greater levels of inclusivity
•Help promote a sense of belonging to all community members

“Share our similarities - Celebrate our differences.”
M Scott Peck.
