Understanding diversity and inclusion has become more important in recent years as businesses and people strive to create better spaces in which all kinds of people can thrive. That’s why workplace diversity courses have been on the rise, and businesses would do well to jump on this trend. In this video, you will learn what diversity and inclusion are all about so that you too can understand why it’s so important and adopt it into your own workplace.
As the video explains, the first step to any kind of diversity training is realizing the difference between equality and equity. Equity is a superior idea because it recognizes that not all people are the same and that they have different needs.
They should be treated according to their needs, not the same as everyone else. Diversity is what it means to respect these differences and to respect different people. When inclusion happens in the workplace, all people are treated fairly with respect to their backgrounds and differences. Doing so yields a whole host of benefits.
