Diversity Inclusion and Belonging

Sometimes we use the terms Diversity and Inclusion without making the distinction between the two clear in our own minds.  And, how about Belonging?

Just because an organization is diverse doesn’t mean it’s inclusive. We love the insight in this graphic from Vernā Myers as a wonderful visual of the difference between the three.

Vernā is a cultural change catalyst, influencer, thought leader, social commentator, and author. She’s a Harvard-trained lawyer and founder of The Vernā Myers Company. Vernā is also the VP, Inclusion Strategy at Netflix and is highly acclaimed for her ability to help people bridge differences and connect more meaningfully.

As we each walk our own journey, may this tool be a beacon towards the light.
