Equity Diversity Inclusion (EDI)
What is “EDI?”
Equity is defined as the removal of systemic barriers and biases enabling all individuals to have equal opportunity to access and benefit from a program/product/service.
Diversity is defined as differences in race, colour, place of origin, religion, immigrant and newcomer status, ethnic origin, ability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and age.
Inclusion is defined as the practice of ensuring that all individuals are valued and respected for their contributions and are equally supported.
“If diversity is the what, then inclusion is the how”
