'Are we exclusionists or inclusionists?' asks BPS President David Murphy in conversation with Binna Kandola, 'because if we're doing nothing, then we are exclusionists by default' (p.28). Psychology's move towards inclusion must involve 'decolonising'.

Deanne Bell gives four steps to take us towards that vision, and emphasises the importance of stories for understanding the suffering of those who are othered (p.34). Sarah Atayero shares her own story of exclusion, and looks ahead to a future of workplace inclusion(p.38). We are reminded by Flora Cornish that decolonising is serious but it can also bring joy, changing our thoughts and our feelings (p.64).

A holistic approach to inclusion brings the challenge of ensuring all marginalised communities are welcome, says Binna Kandola. We have our work cut out. At The Psychologist we seek to include, butwe need your help. Please put yourself forward (and see also p.7) or tell us whose story we should be including.
