Step 3: Learn About Inclusion Nudges

An Inclusion Nudge relatively soft and non-intrusive mental push (passive and active) that will mitigate unconscious associations, thus help the brain make more objective decisions, and promote more inclusive behaviours – that will stick.

We have identified three types of Inclusion Nudges that address challenges in the employee life cycle and organisational culture. They target both the brain’s reflective “System 2” and its automatic “System 1”, unlike the passive behavioural nudges that target only the automatic system. We’ve experienced in practice what the RSA Social Brain project Steer concludes: that only by taking a “holistic reflexive approach” to brain science can we improve how we navigate our automatic, controlled and environmental impulses.
