What are the definitions of diversity and inclusion?

        Diversity is about the individual. It is about the variety of unique dimensions, qualities and characteristics we all possess.

        Inclusion is about the collective. It is about creating a culture that strives for equity and embraces, respects, accepts and values difference.

        Diversity and inclusion is about capturing the uniqueness of the individual; creating an environment that values and respects individuals for their talents, skills and abilities to the benefit of the collective.
