The Difference Between Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity


Given all that we are seeing happen in the world right now, we’re hearing a lot about the concepts of equity, diversity, and inclusion (or EDI). As someone who has been teaching EDI concepts for almost two decades now, I know first-hand how vital each of these concepts are in creating more accepting, inclusive workplaces and societies where everyone feels comfortable living as their authentic self. I also know that the unique concepts of equity, inclusion, and diversity can be tricky to describe and that far too often we are presented with generalized definitions that fail to capture the nuances of and differences between these distinctive principles. In this video, Ritu explain the difference between equity, diversity, and inclusion and share which of the three I think is most important for creating social change.
