Diversity is the way in which people are unique, both visible and invisible, innate and external. It describes the differences and uniqueness of people, acknowledging the unique blend of knowledge, skills and perspectives people can bring to the workplace.*
Inclusion is a workplace’s culture and the way in which the workplace welcomes diversity and creates an environment where all different kinds of people can thrive and succeed. Inclusion is the empowerment of people to contribute their skills and perspectives and allows everyone to bring their authentic selves to work.*
Inclusivity and diversity does not come at the detriment of others**.
