Inclusion
Inclusion refers to internal practices, policies, and processes that shape an organization or community’s culture. It speaks to how community members of a shared identity experience their environment and that their input is valued by the whole. Inclusion benefits existing populations represented within an organization or community. Source: Adapted from The Greenlining Institute and Equity and Inclusion Campaign, The Diversity Project
Belonging
Belonging is the innate human desire to be a part of something larger than ourselves. Belonging is achieved when we accept and are accepted for our true, authentic and imperfect selves. Belonging happens when we offer one another a sense of security and support that comes from acceptance and inclusion.
