Preface

“The Inclusive Innovation Playbook is a passion project born out of my unwavering commitment to creating a more inclusive world. I've witnessed firsthand the transformative power of diversity and inclusion in driving innovation and sparking positive change.
Yet, inclusive innovation is the exception, rather than the norm.
I created this playbook, with the support of an incredible team of collaborators, to help remove the common barriers that prevent inclusive innovation. I hope it will inspire and empower you to drive positive change through the products and services you create, and in the world around you.
If you think inclusive innovation is just a 'nice to have,' or if you've been held back by doubts and uncertainty about where to start, let this playbook be your guide.
If you are involved in the creation of digital products or services, the Inclusive Innovation Playbook is a must-read resource.
Packed with practical strategies, tools and actionable insights, I hope this playbook will be a go-to resource that you can turn to time and time again.
Let’s make the world a more inclusive place, together.”
Marissa Ellis, Founder & CEO, Diversily
