Here’s some key takeaways from this episode: 

It’s useful to think of Inclusion as an infinite game.

“You don’t know who’s playing along. You don’t know all the rules. You don’t know when this is going to stop.”

There are no fixed rules, no fixed boundaries and no fixed end point.

“You get to make the rules. You get to push the boundaries. You get to contribute even if no one knows who you are.”

The goal isn’t to win in the short term.

“Sometimes you may not feel like showing up. Sometimes I don’t feel like showing up! But our focus is on ongoing engagement and participation, with no fixed endpoint.”
