    What is DEI?


    Diversity - Diversity Refers To All Aspects of Human Difference, Social Identities, and Social Group Differences, Including But Not Limited to Race, Ethnicity, Creed, Color, Sex, Gender, Gender Identity, Sexual Identity, Socio-Economic Status, Language, Culture, National Origin, Religion/Spirituality, Age, (Dis)ability, and Military/Veteran Status, Political Perspective,

    and Associational Preferences.


    Equity -Equity Refers to Working Toward Fair Opportunities and Outcomes For Everyone By Removing Barriers That Often Result In Unique Challenges and Disadvantages.  Historic-Current.  Equity Is Different Than Equality In That Equality Implies Treating Everyone the Same As If Their Experiences Are Exactly the Same.


    Inclusion - Inclusion Is About Achieving An Environment Which Those In It Feel Respected, Have a Sense Of Belonging, Are Granted Equal Access To Opportunities and They Can Contribute Fully To Whatever Environment They Are In To Achieve Their Full Potential.
