Category: Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion is about treating all people with equal respect and kindness, and making sure everyone can benefit from equal opportunities. Many groups may face discrimination in regards to their race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, age, mental health, religion, physical abilities, etc.

The American Bar Association (ABA) defines diversity as a term “used to describe the set of policies, practices, and programs that change the rhetoric of inclusion into empirically measurable change.”

Business executives and hiring teams are responsible for ensuring everyone are provided fair opportunities. Unfortunately, there’s still a long way to go to safeguard people from mistreatment. Every day examples are reported on social media and on sites like Glassdoor of people being treated unfairly in the workplace.
