Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is not just a phrase; each word speaks to distinct values. In having conversations with candidates, it is helpful to purposefully provide definitions for diversity, equity, and inclusion allowing for a thoughtful conversation.
Diversity: The representation of different and unique identities, characteristics, experiences, and perspectives.
Equity: Giving everyone what they need to succeed by increasing access, resources, and opportunities for all; especially for those who are underrepresented and have been historically disadvantaged.
Inclusion: A welcoming culture in which differences are celebrated and everyone is valued, respected, and able to reach their full potential.
