What are we talking about when we speak about making philosophy more inclusive?

Due to the fact that I work in an underrepresented area of philosophy (Indian philosophy, even worse: Pūrva Mīmāṃsā) and I am a woman, I am more than interested in the general topic of “making philosophy more inclusive“. But what do we really mean by this slogan?
We might mean:

  1. Including more people from underrepresented groups (women, transsexuals, disabled people, black people, ethnic, political and religious minorities…)
  2. Including more people working on underrepresented topics (e.g., feminist philosophy, (critical) race-theory, philosophy of disability, Africana philosophy…)
