Why DEI?

Embracing DEI in your organization means supporting all aspects of a person, such as race, religion, gender, etc., as well as deeper parts of an individual’s character like values, personality, and preferences.

It is essential to identify the existing diversity in your organization so you can recognize potential gaps and become aware of ways that you can build a more equitable and inclusive workplace.

We’ll explore:

  • What diversity, equity, and inclusion really mean
  • The differences between equity and equality
  • How to make decisions with DEI in mind
  • Strategies and remedies to improve DEI in your organization
