We publish a lot of information around Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging. It’s already well-established just how important and meaningful these topics are. When it comes to actioning workplace solutions around D&I, a commitment to continuous learning is essential. It’s important to know what you don’t know, and proactively self-educate.
Let’s start off with some tips and guidelines for this mindset, and then you’ll see a thorough list of readings and resources you can leverage as you continue to develop your understanding of and relationship with D&I.
Tips & Guidelines

Having an opinion isn’t the only way to participate in the conversation. If you’re not confident in a subject relating to D&I, get curious about it.
- Avoid Making Assumptions
Try not to make assumptions about someone else’s opinion, someone else’s personal experience or someone else’s identity.
- Continuous Learning Is Key
D&I is a popular topic, and consequently, there is a breadth of educational information available for your consumption (up next!).
- Think About The Context
D&I doesn’t exist in a vacuum – priorities, focuses, or perceptions around D&I can depend on culture/nationality/demographic. For example, a Deloitte study revealed that millennials define D&I very differently than other generations.
