What do Diversity & Inclusion mean, anyway?

If you have been wondering about the meaning of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I), you are not alone.  The words get used by people in different contexts in varied ways and it can seem confusing.

 

Here are basic definitions that we at Inclusant find helpful as a starting point:

 

Diversity

the presence of differences, meaning everywhere we are and everything we encounter

 

Inclusion

a system of activities and processes undertaken in order to create a climate that is inclusive, fair, and actively welcoming of difference

 

If you struggle to advance D&I in your organization, Inclusant can help.  Request a consultation!
