6 Tips to Make Remote Meetings Inclusive and Accessible

Updated: Jul 15, 2021



Working remotely – and working in crisis mode - can cause even the most well-intentioned managers to plummet into patterns of bias and exclusion unintentionally. Here are a few things you can do to ensure inclusion in remote meetings:


  • Remember that speaking up in virtual meetings may be more challenging for some than in-person meetings.

  • Insist people use video cameras. This will encourage participation and connection and allow you to observe body language that may indicate disapproval or excitement.

  • Send information in advance. This will allow people the opportunity to be prepared to speak.

  • Begin meetings by acknowledging everyone in the room.

  • In smaller meetings, check-in with each person individually.

  • Record and share the link. This option allows employees who were unable to attend to engage with the materials retroactively.
