Have you wondered what DEI means?

What is the difference between equality and equity?

How are they related to social justice?

It’s not enough to hire women, LGBTQI+ or folks from different ethnicities to improve diversity. What is crucial to them staying, feeling comfortable and being heard is fostering a sense of purpose, belonging and fairness at workplaces.

In my talk I will try to explain each term and reasons as to why we need to make an effort not just as an individual but together as a group to help build diverse communities that thrive.

I want to propose an action-oriented approach that can be adopted at homes, communities and organisations so that people feel included, appreciated and encouraged to be their best authentic selves.
