Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Stay Engaged


Promoting justice, impartiality and fairness within the procedures, processes, and distribution of resources by institutions or systems. Tackling equity issues requires an understanding of the root causes of outcome disparities within our society.


The presence of differences that may include race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, age, religious commitment, or political perspective. This includes populations that have been-and remain-underrepresented among practitioners in the field and marginalized in the broader society.


An outcome to ensure those that are diverse actually feel and/or are welcomed. Inclusion outcomes are met when you, your institution, and your program are truly inviting to all. It reflects the degree to which diverse individuals are able to participate fully in the decision-making processes and development opportunities within an organization or group.
