What Does Inclusion Mean to you?

The Society for Human Resource Management has defined inclusion as “the achievement of a work environment in which all individuals are
treated

fairly
and
respectfully,
have
equal access
to opportunities and resources, and can
contribute fully
to the organization’s success.
What Does Diversity Mean to You?
The term "diversity" is used broadly to refer to
many demographic variables
, including, but not limited to,
race, religion, color, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, age, education, geographic origin, and skill

characteristics
. America's diversity has given this country its unique strength, resilience and richness.
