The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has defined diversity as “the collective mixture of differences and similarities that includes for example, individual and organizational characteristics, values, beliefs, experiences, backgrounds, preferences, and behaviors.” Diversity has expanded into the concept of inclusion. SHRM defines inclusion as “the achievement of a work environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the organization’s success.”

Diversity and Inclusion (D and I) has evolved from a task focused on workforce classification and reporting to a leadership strategy that is an integral part of an organization’s strategic plan. At SHRM, Diversity Management is “the comprehensive organizational and managerial process for leveraging diversity and achieving inclusion that maximizes the potential of all employees.”
