About Charlotte Hughes​

Hughes discovered her passion for diversity and inclusion early in life as the daughter of a Black pediatrician during the racially turbulent 1960’s.  Her father with two other physicians, formed the first minority medical group practice in the state of Ohio, serving the greater Cleveland community over 50 years, caring for diverse families across multiple generations.

Her mother strengthened that compassion in her DNA, instilling a concern for people from all walks of life, races, and ethnicities.  When reflecting on her upbringing, Charlotte says “Throughout my youth and adult life,  I’ve welcomed and collaborated with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures endlessly – at home, at work, and as a citizen of the world.”

Our Mission

“Speak up, speak out, get in the way. Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America” is the famous quote regarding racial equality and social justice by the late Congressman John Lewis. Lewis, a legend of the Civil Rights movement, a leader of the 1963 March on Washington, and an icon for racial equality and equity for more than five decades, passed away on July 17, 2020, in the midst of another widespread uprising for racial justice and equality in the U.S.

Inclusive Leaders Group’s mission is to help organizations and their leaders get in good trouble, necessary trouble, to create continuously improving inclusive workplace cultures where racial equity is the norm.
