What is equity, diversity and inclusion?

EDI or DEI are the policies and programs that encourage representation, participation and engagement of diverse groups of people.

Why we choose to use EDI rather than DEI?

We believe that order matters. The choice between EDI ( Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) and DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) is about emphasizing the importance of equity, which tends to get left out. To leverage the full potential of their workforce, organizations must also focus on equity. Even with diverse and inclusive programs and policies, talents from different backgrounds may not be fully-engaged.

Pay equity is important, but not enough.

Understanding the importance of equity starts with recognizing that equality and equity aren’t the same. While equality is about treating everyone the same, equity is more about realizing that because people aren't always on equal footing to start with, equal treatment can, in fact, perpetuate inequality. Especially when some members of an organization’s workforce face barriers to their success and others do not.
