Diversity and Inclusion are important concepts in any business or organization however these concepts come with other factors, ideas or notions that sometimes distort our perspective.
So, what is diversity? what is inclusion? What is the relationship between diversity and inclusion?
Diversity encompasses all characteristics experiences and cultural influences that make each of us unique individuals.
Inclusion on the other hand occurs where everyone has an opportunity to contribute and fully participate in creating goal-oriented success.
Inclusion is creating an environment where each person is valued and respected for his or her distinctive skills, experiences and perspectives.
Therefore, Inclusion is the bridge that takes one from tolerating the diversity of others to celebrating that diversity.
Our Diversity Education and Awareness program is designed to help our partners understand the changing landscape of diversity as they endeavor to create inclusive organizations.
