DEIB strategies are increasingly
critical to business performance

Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are just as good for business as they are for individual employees, and they’re much more than mere buzzwords. When DEI is at the heart of workplace culture, the benefits are seen in every facet of the organization.

It’s easier to attract, nourish and retain employees who, in turn, have higher degrees of productivity and innovation that directly contribute to increased revenue. Moreover, an effective DEI strategy extends to a company’s brand identity, which speaks volumes to customers, prospects, partners and investors.

But don’t just take
our word for it

How we teach about
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion
& Belonging

DEI is an acronym that stands for diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. While the terms diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are often used interchangeably, there are distinct differences among them. 

  • Diversity is the presence of differences within a given environment. 
  • Equity is the process of ensuring that fair treatment, access and opportunity exist for all people despite their individual identities.
  • Inclusion is the practice of ensuring that all voices within a diverse team of people are valued and utilized.  
  • Belonging is the state of feeling heard and valued.  Employees feel a sense of belonging when they believe they are wholly accepted for who they truly are.
