Inclusive Voices brings together public figures to share alternative opinions on what could and should be done to secure inclusion and equality for all by 2030.

Activist and author Blair Imani asks you not to erase who she is. New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern can’t wait for the day when a female leader is so commonplace it doesn’t even merit comment. Celebrity restaurateur and chef Yotam Ottolenghi thinks that diversity is the recipe for a rich life. Supermodel and founder of Every Mother Counts Christy Turlington Burns wants all voices at the table.
