Inclusivity an intention or policy of including people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized, such as those who are handicapped or learning-disabled, or racial and sexual minorities.
Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) is a corporate diversity and inclusion policy in which every employee is included in the company and their needs and interests are taken into account.
Organizations should hire diverse people and provide them with equal opportunities to contribute to the success of the business regardless of their background.
Diversity refers to many aspects: age, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, physical and mental characteristics, place of residence, education, personal and professional backgrounds.
Inclusion is about creating a work environment and creating a corporate culture so that each employee can work effectively and comfortably in a way that is sensitive to his or her specific needs.
Diversity & Inclusion is based on the fact that greater diversity among employees gives more variability in approaches to solving work tasks and problems, the ability to look at the business processes and products of the company from different points of view and to generate non-standard ideas.
Some researches note that the introduction of D&I principles has a positive effect on the growth of the financial performance of companies. Therefore, the main goal of the D&I policy is to achieve a combination of strong professionals and better results at the expense of different people in the team.
