What is Diversity and Inclusion?


Diversity is difference- the quantifiable visible differences and the invisible human characteristics that demographics cannot track. It is any dimension of identity that can be used to differentiate groups of people from one another. Every living creature is diverse.

Inclusion is the notion that all cultures have perspectives, experiences and lifestyles that are rich, valuable and deserving of respect and consideration.  Inclusion is the state of being valued, respected and supported. Inclusive institutions have communities that recognize, involve and empower because of the inherent worth and dignity of all.

When partnered together, Diversity and Inclusion are powerful drivers of innovation.
