Myths and Challenges

Myth: - “The two terms ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’ have the same meaning” FALSE

Using a great quote from Verna Myers’ - “Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.”  Diversity represents the variety of human differences including, but not limited to: skills, experiences, work styles, education level, religion, cultural background, race, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, and class.  Inclusion involves understanding, valuing and leveraging these differences to achieve superior organisational results.

Daily Challenge: - “Make a pledge”

So, it’s been a busy week, focusing on Equality, Diversity & Inclusion now it’s time to commit to making inclusion an everyday reality for the next 51 weeks.

Remember Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is the responsibility of everyone.  We all play an important role in ensuring that the diverse experiences, ideas and talents of our workforce and student population are valued and leveraged. 

Make a pledge to change something for the better, remember it is the little things that make all the difference!
