All of Us: What We Mean When We Talk about Inclusion

It is the “golden age” of inclusion, a time when countries, corporations, and other groups worldwide are more conscious of the benefits of inclusion. Yet, an ever expanding number of people worldwide count themselves as being left behind. How can so many feel so excluded? Where do we go now?

What is 6 Degrees?

6 Degrees drives a global conversation on citizenship and inclusion. The Canadian initiative is at once an immersive annual three-day event in Toronto, a series of one-day sessions across the globe, and a digital space where ideas and experiences are continuously shared. 6 Degrees is about connection, conversation, artistic representation and the power that comes from bringing engaged people together. It counters rising nativism and exclusion, and instead, invites everyone to find a place in our circle.
