Inclusion Nudges is a change methodology developed in 2013 by Lisa Kepinski and Tinna C. Nielsen
based on our extensive experience as global change makers combined with our background in behavioural sciences
Inclusion Nudges Guidebook
Inclusion Nudges are practical designs to influence the unconscious mind to automatically be inclusive in daily actions, leadership, and decision-making. Inclusion Nudges are redesign of processes, reframing of perceptions, as well as eye-openers that motivate and engage people in making inclusion the norm everywhere, for everyone.
The Inclusion Nudges Guidebook is a collection of 100 how-to examples designed based on behavioural and social sciences and insights about stuck patterns for inclusion. These are all designed and applied by us and a global community of change makers who share their own proven examples.
This Inclusion Nudges Guidebook shows step by step how you can apply Inclusion Nudges in your organisation, community, and society - basically everywhere. We share with you how you can minimise the impact of cognitive bias in systems, processes, cultures, and behaviours to benefit from the diversity of people, and stay agile and innovative, perform better and create a more sustainable future for us all.
You make it happen!

Changed my view on how to approach inclusion & gender equity.
Claire Bonenfant, Country Director, SThree
To limit bias damage, I asked around for practical tools, but felt many are stuck in the ’men are evil’ discussion. However, I was so pleased to finally get a hold of the Inclusion Nudges Guidebook. Thanks a million!
Emma Hammarlund, Geo-biologist, lecturer & researcher at Translational Cancer Research, Lund University, Sweden & The Nordic Center for Earth Evolution, Southern Denmark
The Inclusion Nudges Guidebook is one of the most useful references in my library. I have incorporated a number of Inclusion Nudges. A great practical way of getting to action, rather than just talk.
Guy Martin, Global HR Program Director, ASSA ABLOY Group
This is a powerful toolkit that shapes our thinking in ways that help us learn to find new solutions ourselves. This is an important book for anyone who wants to create real, sustainable change.
Howard Ross, Founder Cook Ross & author of Our Search for Belonging
Reading the Inclusion Nudges Guidebook sparks my creativity. Sometimes, I find a nudge I can use exactly as written & other times, I get inspired to apply a twist or create a new one.
Julie O’Mara, Co-author of the Global Diversity & Inclusion Benchmarks
I recommend the Inclusion Nudges Guidebook to anyone passionate about inclusivity. It is a collection of practical, implementable case studies grounded in real world experiences.

The Inclusion Nudges work is needed for designing organisations and communities to be more inclusive from the get-go rather than as an overlay or afterthought.

We do interactive speaking and masterclasses about the Inclusion Nudges change approach and design methodology. It’s a combination of behavioural insights and design expertise in inclusive behaviour, culture, systems, leadership, and co-creation. We give you practical how-to designs and practical examples that empower you to make your organisation, community, and society inclusive as the default and norm.
We come to your organisation or event and do it in-person or virtually. It’s up to you.
We do this all over the world—at the EU Commission, local government organisations, the UN, some of the world’s biggest companies, at universities, in refugee camps, in public organisations, at conferences focused on innovation, the economy, the UN SDGs, entrepreneurship, leadership development, inclusion & diversity, human resources, and more. We see a need everywhere for making inclusion the default and norm. We can link our knowledge as change makers for inclusion to all fields and challenges. Let us know yours.
