The key word is "inclusive." When we adopt and EXclusionary policy or practice, no matter how lofty or well-meaning its original intent, it always devolves into a subjective exercise that invariably results in a lack of equality and diversity.
The words "equality" and "diversity" don't just have meaning in the contexts of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or background. They also have meaning in the contexts of experience, training, ability, style, and methodology.
I have had employers who refused to hire, retain, or promote those who learned their craft in a different way, or had a different approach or fresh ideas as it related to the corporate goals. This is a bad idea, in that it promotes stagnation and limits the input that evolves naturally from differing points of view, imagination or previously unconsidered patterns of critical thought.
Have you ever heard someone say something like, "You know what we need? We need a set of fresh eyes on this problem." That is a person who is promoting equality and diversity in the most pure and important way possible - by being open to the idea of fresh input or even a new approach to the problem or goal, without stopping to be concerned about specific, unrelated issues regarding the source of that input, such as race or where someone grew up or went to school.
A truly open mind can never create an atmosphere that discourages real equality and diversity. An open mind is naturally inclusive, and seeks inclusion as a path to efficiency and, thereby, success.
