    Inclusion in the Workplace

    Diversity is the traits and characteristics that make us all unique. Inclusion is where you feel like you belong because the unique aspects of ALL individuals are valued, appreciated and leveraged. One of the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace is that it has the ability to yield innovative ideas. Diverse sets of experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds are crucial to the development of new ideas.  Inclusion fosters an environment where these unique ideas are embraced.

          Great ideas aren't always grand.  They can be very simple but innovative ways to promote inclusion.
