Why use the Diversity & Inclusion Maze
You can’t be diverse or inclusive on your own – a team is a must. A team of diverse talents, cultures, mindsets, backgrounds and experiences, that all feel included.
The team must define its own Diversity & Inclusion vision, commit to it and sustain it.
Don’t outsource it to your C-suite or HR department (they are of course key Diversity & Inclusion stakeholders).
But first what is Diversity and Inclusion?
We asked the oracle of our times – @ChatGPT:
Diversity refers to the differences that exist among people, including but not limited to differences in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, physical ability, socio-economic status, and cultural background.
Inclusion, on the other hand, is the practice of creating a welcoming and supportive environment that values and respects these differences.
Together, diversity and inclusion involve recognizing and valuing the unique characteristics of individuals and groups, and promoting an environment that encourages participation and engagement from all members, regardless of their background or identity. This can include actively seeking out diverse perspectives and opinions, providing equal access to opportunities and resources, and creating a culture that celebrates and embraces differences.
