How to start Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging:
💧 First, start with Diversity, by bringing different groups together.
💧 Next, move to Equity, and begin creating an environment that acknowledges advantages/disadvantages various groups experience and works to correct that imbalance, getting everyone to the same starting place.
💧 Then, once you have leveled the playing
field, you are ready for Inclusion, and employees can begin feeling valued and heard for who they are.
💧 Lastly, you can add in Belonging and celebrate the uniqueness and perspective each employee brings to work and encouraging authenticity in the workplace.
