Use a comma before “including” and “such as” when followed by a nonrestrictive, nonessential phrase or clause.

Can you give me an example of a nonrestrictive or nonessential phrase or clause?

A nonrestrictive modifying clause (or nonessential clause) is an adjective clause that adds extra or nonessential information to a sentence. The meaning of the sentence would not change if the clause were to be omitted. Nonrestrictive modifying clauses are usually set off by commas. - source


My academic experience thus far has equipped me with a deeper comprehension of society from a global perspective, including international trade, globalisation, environmental issues and economic inequality.
