Inclusive Leadership Programme – Cloudflare


The goal for Cloudflare is to help overcome blind spots within the tech industry by building inclusive innovation into the fabric of what they do. And the first step to building an innovative tech company that’s diverse and inclusive is to ensure the leadership team is the same.


Included started working with Cloudflare’s EMEA team in 2019 to help better embed D&I into the work of their leadership populations. We also worked with them on embedding inclusion into their innovative product design.


Cloudflare ran a company-wide full day initiative in June 2020 featuring external speakers on race and inclusion. Almost every global employee attended or participated in some way. The business has also taken the profound step of starting a conversation about and then reforming their coding languages and terminologies, removing racial or offensive wording.
