INCLUSION

DIVERSITY refers to the differences among people. Characteristics such as gender, race, ethnicity, age, physical ability, mental ability, culture, religion, and many others contribute to the diversity of an organization.

EQUITY refers to fair and equal access, opportunity, and advancement for all persons. This means that everyone is playing on a level field, with no advantages - systemic or otherwise - going to one group over another.

INCLUSION refers to the extent to which the members of an organization feel as if they belong and are valued by the organization and the people who make it up. This is a vital component of maintaining a truly diverse and equitable organization.
