ALL kinds of diversity deserve respect

Hello!

Blemish. Disgrace. Stain.

There are well over 30 synonyms for the word ‘stigma’. None of them are pretty.

The truth is, while many believe it’s now appropriate to discuss mental health in the workplace, a majority of those same people wouldn’t be comfortable sharing their own struggles in this area. Mum’s still the word for many who fear the negative and discriminatory judgments of others who lack understanding when it comes to mental illnesses and neurodiversity. Until our workplaces become more psychologically safe for everyone, those living with mental health issues will still fear the stigma of their “undisclosed” identities, and all of the destructive synonyms that go with it.

This Mental Health Awareness Month, take the first step and educate yourself. The National Institute of Mental Health is a comprehensive resource for information and research regarding mental health disorders and other related topics.

Next, become a trailblazer and share what you’ve learned with others.

Our 100K Conversations Campaign can provide the tools and resources needed to take that bold first step in advancing awareness and inclusion in your workplace. With guides and resources to help you along the way, there’s nothing to lose by joining thousands of other inclusion advocates in the pursuit of transparent communication and workplaces where everyone can be their full self.

Help us reach our goal of 100,000 inclusion-minded conversations by committing to the challenge today!

Lead with Inclusion: Inclusive Actions at Work with Stacey Gordon

How to welcome “undisclosed” identities at work

Whether due to a mental health condition, chronic illness, or neurodiversity, a lot of professionals have “invisible” identities that impact how they experience the workplace. Unfortunately, many of these identities are stigmatized, so many people go to work each day feeling they can’t be their whole self. Here are some practical ways to expand your awareness and education, and take action within your company to be more inclusive of all identities and experiences.
