What is Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?


Inclusion in the workplace occurs in an environment where everyone, from a talent pool of diverse backgrounds, all feel like they belong. Equity asks what are the barriers to a diverse and inclusive workplace and how can we completely eliminate them.

Equitable leadership practices are then put in place to develop in your people the ability to understand, communicate with and effectively interact with people across different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

Why is Diversity, Equity and Inclusion important?

Diversity is being invited to the party, Equity is providing the means to get there and Inclusion is being asked to dance. In today’s social climate it is now more important than ever to instill in your employees, students, teachers and those in positions of authority to develop:

● Cultural awareness through cross-cultural skills.
● An awareness of one’s own cultural worldview.
● A positive attitude toward cultural differences.
● Knowledge of different cultural practices and worldviews.
Anti-bias and anti-racist practices and worldviews.
