Inclusion is an important leadership issue, yet effectiveness variability exists among diversity and inclusion initiatives, potentially indicative of policy-practice decoupling. We develop a moderated mediation model with policy-practice decoupling as a mediator between supervisors' inclusive leadership and climate for inclusion, with CEO's inclusive leadership and group diversity as moderators. Inclusion climate is shaped by shared experiences of group members, and by their identities. Historically underrepresented members likely experience decoupling similar to other members of their identity group. We suggest that inclusive leaders succeed at minimizing policy-practice coupling as perceived by all group members, not just historically high-status members.
