Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
Diversity counts who is seated at the table. Equity requires preliminary work to identify imbalances, loopholes, or unequal starting places. Inclusion is about participation which occurs when diverse populations are involved in decision-making that impacts the policies and practices of the organization. Belonging is when intentional effort is made to ensure all communities feel welcomed. This happens when leadership wholeheartedly supports efforts of inclusion in their relationships, conversations, physical space, actions and written word.
