Diversity demonstrates an awareness and understanding of what differentiates groups and people from one another.

Inclusion is about belonging and fostering an organisational culture that allows diversity to flourish.

Why is diversity and inclusion important in the workplace?

Everyone, irrespective of one’s race, culture, spirituality, ability, disability, class, education, gender, and sexual orientation should be treated with fairness and respect. Diversity and inclusion in the workplace encourage fairness, respect, and equity. It increases employee’s morale, sense of belonging, a feeling of safety and the ability to build trust in the workplace. In return, employees may feel empowered, driven, effective, psychologically minded, and organisations increase productivity and efficiency.
