    00:00 In general, we want to think about outside of the healthcare realm some considerations in terms of culture and the culture of veterans and service members especially veterans and service members can include people serving in the National Guard whom may have served actively in another branch of the military.

    00:25 So in general, let's say it's in an organization.

    00:27 Certain things might trigger a veterans.

    00:30 So if we think about the anniversary of death maybe when someone who served in the same unit as that veteran may be triggering if that person died and there are several people died in that particular circumstance.

    00:46 If that veteran needs some time off, it could be a day, a week, whatever it is, being culturally inclusive means that you need to give that space. Right? And being inclusive in general with inclusive excellence.

    01:00 So, that's not showing favoritism.

    01:03 That is being accommodating to someone's needs at that time and that goes a long long way in terms of commitment to the organization as well.

    01:12 So when we think about equity, it's giving people what they need specifically.

    01:17 It's individualizing.

    01:19 That's just one example, but just also offering the space so that the person doesn't feel like their job is in jeopardy.

    01:28 And then when we think about physical injury as well, so back problems, leg and knee problems, any kind of physical pain that a person may have that sometimes they may need extended time off and yes there is the family medical leave bag, but we also want to be empathetic in terms of knowing that this may happen.

    01:47 It may even include not necessarily being off but not being physically present in the office.

    01:53 So, we know that the virtual world is a reality for us that's probably never going away.

    01:58 So just being accommodating even in that way.

    02:01 If the person says "I cannot work, whatever it is," just again being open having those conversations and making people feel that sense of belonging.
