Building an inclusive society is one of the government core social policies to ensure a stable, safe, just and tolerant community that respects diversity, provides equal opportunities and encourages participation of all people, including disadvantaged and vulnerable groups and persons, to unleash their full potential.
To develop a sustainable inclusive society, it is crucial to nurture a sense of empathy among each individual and group in our society. Social resources and effort should be orchestrated empathetically across all levels and segments to uncover social challenges and deficits and to discover the physiological and sociological patterns of social asymmetry with seen and unseen societal gaps. Social programmes and initiatives should focus on driving systemic changes, nurturing long term change in mindsets and paradigms towards an empathetic society. Having such core elements in the process, individuals and groups will act inclusively and empathetically towards a just and equal society.
