This research note presents the results from analysis of survey data that was collected as a part of the NWO-WOTRO research project on inclusive business models in Africa. A total of 75 businesses and NGOs from The Netherlands and six African countries participated in this survey. The survey was undertaken to arrive at improved understanding of inclusiveness issues, themes and challenges as encountered by practitioners. The results will be useful for identifying specific areas of inclusiveness for a close up study in the next stages of the research project. This note touches upon the following questions: How do organizations understand and approach inclusiveness? Are there differences across organizations in policy priority for becoming inclusive? What are targeted themes of social exclusion, and do these differ across countries? What challenges do organizations face in their efforts to become inclusive?
