Defining DEI

What is Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?

Diversity is the presence of difference that may include race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, age, religious commitment, or political perspective.

Equity is the process of fairness. The policy that one would implement to ensure processes and procedures promote justness and impartiality

Inclusion is an outcome to ensure those that are diverse actually feel and/or are welcomed. Are you, the institution, and your program inviting? URL: https://diversity.umich.edu/about/defining-dei/
