A diverse and inclusive workplace recognises the inherent value each person brings to the workplace. It is a workplace where everyone can contribute and feel included.
Diversity is often described as counting people, whereas inclusion is making people count.
Diversity in the workplace reflects the broader community; it includes people of different race, religion, or culture, from different ages, gender, and sexuality, and with different family responsibilities or impairments. Diversity at work brings people together, and gives them an opportunity to share their unique background and traditions.
Inclusion is diversity in practice; it is a culture of respect and involvement of all. Inclusion focuses on valuing and respecting each individual, so they can achieve their full potential.
A non-discriminatory workplace benefits all employees. Here are some tips for creating diversity and inclusion in your workplace:
In the modern workplace, it is likely your colleagues come from all across the world, are of different race and sex, face different physical, emotional and intellectual impairments, speak a variety of languages, and differ from you in a number of ways. Workplaces are already diverse – embracing and celebrating the diversity creates an inclusive culture for all.
