What is DEI Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion? Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are vital to creating and maintaining a successful workplace; one founded on the principle that all people can thrive personally and professionally. It’s important to fully understand each component, both individually and how they work together.
Diversity is 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. Populations that have been-and remain- underrepresented among practitioners in the field and marginalized in the broader society.
Equity is 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.
Inclusion is an outcome to ensure those that are diverse actually feel and/or are welcome. Inclusion outcomes are met when you, your institution, and your program are truly inviting to all.
On Leap of Fate Pod 94, our guest this week, Kellie Wagner, is the founder and CEO of Collective DEI. Collective DEI works with high-growth, millennial-driven brands and organizations to build cultures that attract, engage, and retain underrepresented talent so that all employees can thrive. Whether companies are just starting out on their diversity, equity, and inclusion journey or simply need some help fine-tuning their company initiatives, Collective DEI will provide consulting, training, and workshops.
Kellie educates Leap of Fate fans on DEI, how she started Collective, a DEI lab as a minority founder as a woman of color, and the success Collective DEI Lab has had.
