Transformation.tech defines DEI (Diversity Equity, Inclusion as follows:
Diversity is onboarding a diverse range of individuals that span a whole spectrum of races, genders, languages, regions, nationalities, religions, sects, wealth, sexual orientation, political beliefs, and abilities.
The more the diversity, the merrier and synergistic in harnessing an elevated level of collective intelligence.
Equity is the concept of realizing that the playing field is not level for some groups and ensuring that the policies, procedures, processes, and perspectives are just equitable and foster better opportunities and outcomes for underrepresented groups.
Inclusion involves ensuring that it is not enough to have islands of disparate groups operating in silos but working together toward a shared destiny where everyone feels included, welcome, voices heard, and perspectives considered.
Taken together, DEI will become a powerful catalyst for corporate performance enhancement.
