The first chapter deals with the concept of inclusive management from the point of view of its definition, objectives and purpose. Inclusion is seen as a universal human right: the purpose of inclusion is to about all people, regardless of race, gender, disability, medical or other needs the nature. It is about providing equal access and opportunity and getting rid of discrimination and intolerance (removal of barriers). In this component, the inclusion is much more close to the social binder as it affects all aspects of public life.

It is defined as the media industry, which involves various components of the media communication industry, such as print media, publishing, news media, photography, cinematography, broadcasting (radio and television) and advertising. In this sense, collaborative learning, respectively teachers involving students, the participation of experts, respectively schools involving professional journalists, as well as citizen journalism (journalists supported by citizens) are dealt with later. The last section of this chapter deals with the issue of inclusion and diversity, starting from the idea that diverse and inclusive teaching leads to innovative results, research showing that only the presence of physical diversity results leads to an additional increase in performance.

Cultural diversity is a topic that cannot and should no longer be ignored.

It is a hot topic that interests many people, but at the same time it is also sensitive and controversial, cultural diversity must be one of the focuses of communication managers of large organizations. In learning, co-construction is a distinctive approach where the emphasis is on working collaboratively or in partnership. However, it also includes some more interactive processes such as cooperation and coordination.
