Diversity has many definitions. Frequently, organizations adapt the definition to their specific environment. Generally, diversity refers to the similarities and differences between individuals accounting for all aspects of one's personality and individual identity.
Diversity – “the collective mixture of differences and similarities that includes for example, individual and organizational characteristics, values, beliefs, experiences, backgrounds, preferences, and behaviors.”
Inclusion – “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 Management – “the comprehensive organizational and managerial process for leveraging diversity and achieving inclusion that maximizes the potential of all employees.”
