What We Do
The Inclusive Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation with the mission of creating a world where everyone is included through organisational assessment, accreditation and transformation, government and agency partnership, social change, and advocacy and empowerment of others.
Evaluation and measurement of your inclusion progress, international and industry benchmarking, tracking of inclusion ROI, inclusive design workshops, a panel of diverse advisors from under represented groups, inclusion strategy and recommendations to associates and partners to assist you through implementation, and an Inclusive Concierge service to answer all your D&I questions. Send a clear message that everyone is valued and included in your organisation.
We are the world’s leading not-for-profit foundation committed to the advancement of inclusive professionals. We partner with Diversity and Inclusion consulting firms (big and small) to assist them with creating the burning platform for change with their clients. We offer a Concierge service so if you have a question that you need help answering, we are here for you. And we offer certification training for you to implement The International Inclusive Standard with your clients/employer.
For a Better World
Our mission is to create a world that includes everyone. We are leading by example as all of our Advisors are from traditionally under represented and under employed groups. And while we believe we can create a movement of change through the organisations and businesses individuals interact with on a daily basis, we also take a broader approach to global social change for inclusion. Our Social Good programs include a broad range of activities at both local and global levels.

The Inclusive Leadership Team
We are a team of people passionate about applying our experience and skills to create a world where everyone is included.
Dr Elizabeth Shoesmith
Liz is the founder and CEO of The Inclusive Foundation. After observing first hand the discrimination and exclusion of a loved one, she was inspired to channel her emotional response into action through the creation of The Inclusive Foundation. Liz is an expert in organisational transformation and behaviour change, with a career focus on assisting businesses, teams and individuals to be the best they can be. She brings this expertise to The Inclusive Foundation as she drives global social transformation. Her mission is to create a world where everyone is included regardless of their perceived differences. She strongly believes that all humans deserve to be treated with respect and kindness, and that inclusiveness is so much more than diversity.
Dr Jill Rathborne
Jill has two decades of experience as a research scientist at world-leading institutions and exceptional expertise in quantitative and qualitative research and analysis. Her career in the male dominated field of science fueled her passion for gender equality and to improve gender equity in STEMM in Australia’s higher education and research sector. Jill believes it is the micro-inequities that do the most damage – the small, seemingly inconsequential ways in which people are excluded or discounted. Her goal at The Inclusive Foundation is identify the opportunities for improvement in organisations through evidence based research and prove the ROI benefit of inclusion.
