How we define diversity, equity, inclusion, and engagement
Diversity is all the ways we are different
Equity is the creation of policies and procedures that eliminate barriers to full participation.
Inclusion is the leverage of differences to create an organization of excellence.
Engagement is an active state where employees feel that their work has a purpose, they feel competent, they feel that they can impact their organization, they expend their full energy at work, and they go above and beyond work duties.
