What is Diversity?

This week we start a two-part section on Diversity, the different forms of diversity and the impacts that they can have on the workplace.

Our diverse world is made up of many values, cultures, and ways of interacting with others. Workplace diversity recognizes and values differences. .A workplace culture is determined by its employees and the diverse traits, abilities, and backgrounds that are present These traits help to set people apart from one another. A team that is built with diverse individuals is one that is creative and successful. There are many kinds of diversity that can be found within the workplace. Some dimensions of diversity are visible, whereas others are not.

DEI in Organizations: What is The Difference between Equality & Equity?

DEI creates an environment where people from various backgrounds are able to share different ideas, skills, and insights. This environment ensures that every team member feels involved and supported. It is not simply an environment where diverse individuals are present, but rather where diverse individuals are involved, empowered, and developed. A foci of this is equity and equality. Equity and equality are terms that are often used interchangeably. Although similar, equity and equality carry different meanings, especially in the context of social systems. This week I explore this difference and ask for your thoughts and what is equity and what is equality.

What Is meant by Diversity and Inclusion?

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) represent an important movement within society and growing organizations. Collectively, DEI will create an environment where individuals feel supported and welcomed, and are given the resources needed to succeed, regardless of their background, identity, or differences. Since diversity, equity, and inclusion all represent a different type of change, it’s valuable to look at each term individually.
