Inequity and isolation: inclusive practices for remote teams


While many dream of working from home, shifting to a fully-remote team has been harder on some groups of the global population than it has been for others. Some jobs are returning to the office, but others are staying out of the office altogether. This can have a profound impact on the lives of underrepresented people in the workplace.

In our quest for the autonomy that working remotely can grant, we sometimes forget the impact that remote work arrangements can have -- less visibility, fewer opportunities for organic networking and mentorship, and different access to resources like working space and internet, to name a few.

Like any inclusion and equity work, many of these problems are challenges that can be overcome through intentionality. Remote workplaces require more intentional approaches to ensure that nobody gets left behind, and the Drupal Diversity and Inclusion initiative will outline practices and resources to help you make the best decisions for your team.
